We’ve all heard of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, but do you know about Giving Tuesday? Seeking the true spirit of the season, #GivingTuesday is intended to be a global day of giving, encouraging you to help others through the gift of time, donation, or action. Inspired by this year’s #GivingTuesday on November 29, 2016, the library’s latest display is all about giving back. The collection features books about kindness, philanthropy, volunteering, charity, social action, and altruism; there are also some movies featuring selfless characters like Amélie and Forrest Gump.
The entire list of titles in the Giving Display can be found in the catalog (if you’d like, click the “Request it” button to place an item on hold). Stop by the library to check them out and if you don’t see what you’re looking for, please come ask at the Reference Desk.
