Donate to the Friends biggest fundraiser--The BIG Saturday Event!

It is that time of year again! Planning for the 2016 BIG SATURDAY event has begun. BIG SATURDAY is held on the first Saturday in September each year. This year it is September 3, 2016, and falls on Labor Day weekend. We expect a large crowd from around town and across the bridge!  

You may be aware that the event was started by the Town of Greenwood as a community yard sale. What you may not know is that a few years ago, the Town handed it over to The Friends of The Greenwood Public Library, as a fundraiser.  BIG SATURDAY is now a non-profit venture sponsored by the FRIENDS OF THE GREENWOOD PUBLIC LIBRARY to raise money to help our local library provide fantastic programs and services to the community. This money goes towards the purchase of books and DVD’s, to pay for insurance for the LEAP (read to the dogs) program and, to pay for Adult, Teen and Children’s Programs. It is the FRIENDS biggest fundraiser.

As a Friends fundraiser, all expenses for the event are paid for by the Friends group, along with the donations and support of local businesses and sponsors. With this in mind, your $100 tax-deductible donation is needed to help offset the cost of advertising and rental of equipment for the event, which has grown bigger each year. The less money the FRIENDS need to put out for the event, the more money we can put towards the library.

Your donation is tax deductible and, each donor will be posted as a sponsor on the BIG SATURDAY website at On the day of the event, all of our sponsors will be listed on the flyers being distributed at the event. Also, our DJ will announce your sponsorship throughout the day!

To be included, enclose your business card or company brochure with your donation—it is that simple. So send in your tax-deductible donation today.  

Please make checks payable to: Friends of the Greenwood Public Library, with a notation that it is for the 2016 BIG SATURDAY event.
