Andrew Carnegie spent the first half of his life making a fortune and the second half giving it away. He set up libraries across the country and benefited numerous charities. But your child or grandchild doesn’t have to be a Carnegie, Ford or Rockefeller, to become a philanthropist.
The Friends recently launched Little Friends of the Library, a program designed to teach children the joy of giving and the importance of supporting their library.
To participate is easy. Each time you visit the library, let your child deposit some spare change into the Bear Bank. Your gift will not only grow the Library’s programming, but you will also teach your child that they can make a difference through philanthropy.
