The Big Payback

May 3, 2016

Support Your Public Library During
The Big Payback!


The countdown to the third annual Big Payback has begun! Hosted by the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee, the Big Payback is a 24-hour, online giving event that invites the Nashville community to come together and support the life-changing work of local nonprofit organizations like NPLF.

Why support NPLF? Numerous studies have shown that reading just four or five books over the summer months prevents summer reading loss and can have a significant impact for middle school readers (by the end of 6th grade, kids who don’t read over the summer may be two years behind their classmates!). NPL’s Summer Challenge program advances literacy and academic performance, increases community involvement and decreases “summer slide” by engaging more than 20,000 children, teens and adults in reading and service-related activities during the summer months.

You can prevent Nashville students from falling behind! Mark your calendars for May 3rd and visit to support NPLF’s Big Payback campaign to stop summer slide!

Help spread the word!
