Send a London Public Library Mother's Day Card

Mom reading together with her children and grandchildren

It can be difficult to find a truly meaningful way in which to celebrate the mothers and mother figures in our lives.  This Mother's Day (May 10), we ask you to consider giving the gift of literacy -- a gift that opens the door to a lifetime of opportunities, that inspires thoughts, dreams and hope and that connects people to the resources and skills they need to succeed.

Give a gift of $10 or more to London Public Library this Mother's Day and we will send a Mother's Day card (by mail or email) in recognition and celebration.  Choose from 5 Mother's Day designs and let us know to whom you wish to send the card.

Your donation to London Public Library helps us to provide knowledge, information and inspiration to all Londoners.  Through the generosity of our donors, we are able to offer programs for children, youth, families and adults, provide special collections of books and other materials and create much-needed spaces for learning, connecting and creating.

This Mother's Day, give the gift that matters more than ever.  Give the gift of literacy -- a donation to London Public Library.

Richer than I you can never be --
I had a mother who read to me.
