Fill the New Building with Books on Opening Day

Giving Tuesday is an international event celebrating generosity, community, and collaboration. This year, we’re asking our community to work together to support the construction of a new library and fill our bookshelves. The new library will have room for 30,000 more books, movies, music CDs, and magazines. On Tuesday, November 30, you can give to the Galesburg Public Library Foundation and fill the new building with books on opening day.

Donation opportunities:

  • $10: nameplate in trade paperback book
  • $25: nameplate in hardback book
  • $100: regular collection bookshelf
  • $250: new and popular materials bookshelf

Stop in the new building when it opens in 2023 to find your name in a book or on a bookshelf.

The library construction is made possible by a $15.3 million grant from the State of Illinois. To stay up-to-date on new building developments, visit the GPL Foundation website,, or like the Galesburg Public Library Foundation on Facebook.
