What is #GivingTuesday?


Help Support the Upper Arlington Public Library

Giving to UAPL

preserves public access to knowledge, invests in diverse and unique collections and partners with a premiere community treasure ranked nationally a 5-Star Library and #1 in its budget category.

is a perpetual gift. Each time a child checks out a story book, an older adult uses the computer to send an email, a teenager accesses a database for a research paper, a family attends one of our many programs, or a community organization meets in one of the meeting rooms your donation helps to make that possible.

helps sustain the values of lifelong education and learning as well as the arts and community entertainment which make Upper Arlington an attractive environment for business development and the place called home for many families and generations.

Giving to the UAPL General Fund

The General Fund is the primary source of the Library's regular and major business operation expenses.
UA voters have generously approved a property tax levy to support general operations of the library. At the present time this represents approximately half of the annual revenue.
Additional support for the general fund is needed for long term sustainability of the Library in the areas of:

  • Expansion of the Collection
  • Information Technology upgrades
  • Major Building Improvements
