The Tuesday after the Thanksgiving holiday is #GivingTuesday, November 30! Giving Tuesday is a charity-based social media movement to inspire others to give back to their communities and simply do good for others. The movement came about in 2012 after an awareness day of international charitable giving, helping others, and celebrating generosity was created by the United Nations.
Now that we are back on campus and can see each other face to face, we’d like to celebrate this movement with you! Loyola students, faculty, staff, and alumni exemplify the tenet of generosity and Ignatian values of being a person for others every day. Whether you have contributed your time or talents to the Libraries, told others about how the Libraries helped you, or made a gift that enabled us to sponsor events, acquire books and other resources, support digital initiatives, enhance facilities, and much more, we are grateful for you!
So, with that being said, we’d love for you to follow our social media accounts from now until November 30 for more information about #GivingTuesdayLUC, @LUClibraries, or @librariesLUC on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. We’ll be sharing fun photos, infographics, quotes, and information about the University Libraries. There will be some behind-the-scenes information you don’t want to miss!
We also want to hear from you! Tell us why you think the University Libraries is special to you. You can also send in some pictures of your favorite memories of the Libraries and the people who have helped you! DM us on our social media platforms @LUClibraries or @librariesLUC to share them with us!
Let your friends and families know about this movement and use #GivingTuesdayLUC when sharing posts about the Libraries to help boost us! We hope through this movement you can revisit your special experiences of the Libraries as well as tell others why their support is needed!
THANK YOU AND WELCOME BACK!
We are so excited to reopen library locations and resume our pre-pandemic services with some necessary health and safety modifications this academic year. Whether you have generously made a gift or shared your time and talents, the University Libraries faculty and staff want to thank you for supporting our vision to be Loyola’s gateway to the world of information and scholarship.
