(Moulton, AL), (November 9, 2018) – The Lawrence County Public Library and Friends of the Lawrence County Public Library will participate in Facebook’s annual #GivingTuesday Campaign.

In honor of #GivingTuesday, the money raised for this fundraiser will be matched up to $1,000 by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, and Facebook is waiving all fees for donations made between 7 a.m. to 10:59 p.m. on Tuesday, 11/27. Please support our cause, and your donation can be doubled! Last year, matching funds were exhausted in less than 15 minutes. If you would like to see your contribution doubled, please beginning donations at 7 a.m. on Tuesday, 11/27.

To be eligible for the matching funds, all donations must be made through the following link: The link will be posted to our website,

Funding for your county library has dropped significantly over the past several years. We have responded by cutting staff, closing the library 4 weeks per year, and reducing our budget for new books and materials by 50%. We have tightened our belt, but still need your help. 

As libraries have an ever growing impact in their communities as a source of information access, employment searches, and activity centers, your donation will allow us to apply your gift where it is need most.

For more information, please contact the library at 256.974.0883 or visit
