Help the Robbins Library Replace Stolen AC Unit!
The Robbins Public Library is a small community library serving a financially disadvantaged community just south of Chicago. Recently, the library’s AC unit was dismantled and stolen from the roof of the building at the height of a crippling heat wave. The library has been struggling due to a declining tax base in the community - the staff hasn’t taken raises in years - and provides essential services to their patrons, including:
- Children’s summer programming
- A literacy and training center
- Community gathering place - especially for those who don’t have AC in their own homes!
The Robbins Library provides essential services to a community that needs them, but they cannot operate without adequate cooling to make the building safe and habitable for all. Let’s give back and use the power of crowdsourcing and caring to fund the AC unit they so desperately need!
