Become a Memphis Innovator!
The city does not fund the majority of MPL programming. Instead, MLF secures donations to fund our innovative and community-centered work at the libraries like Cloud901, Five Fridays of Jazz, Carnegie Writer's Workshop, and Art Classes for Teens in Detention.
The mission of MPL is to provide free resources and services to ALL Memphians - but to do so, library staff need help making these amazing programs happen. That's where you come in! Private donors make our award-winning library programming accessible and free for participants. As a Memphis Innovator, we regularly seek your input, and you will help us build the next round of innovations at MPL.
By setting up monthly donations, you not only become part of an exclusive community with special access to MLF and MPL events, but you also help us ensure long-term impact, cost-effectiveness, and equitable access to MPL services across the city.
On top of monthly updates, requests for feedback on how we can improve, and early access to ticket sales for events, each tier of monthly sustainer will enjoy a thank you gift upon registration. If you join the Innovators today, here's what you will receive:
- $5/month: MLF sticker
- $10/month: the sticker and a bumper sticker (designed by a local artist)
- $25/month: the sticker and a tote bag (designed by a CLOUD901 student)
- $50/month: the tote bag and a print of a Memphis artist's composite drawing of all 18 MPL locations
- $100/month: the tote, the print, and VIP access to any of our events
