CHICAGO – What do misbehaving puppies, tree sap and a melting snowman have in common? This month, they’re helping support the American Library Association (ALA) via Hulu’s Stream for a Cause campaign. Through Dec. 31, each time you stream one of Hulu’s 10 holiday scenics such asPuppies Crash Christmas, “A Sap Story” and “The Snowman, Hulu will contribute to ALA, up to a total donation of $100,000. This year, Hulu created two new holiday scenics, including Library Cheer, to celebrate the partnership.

 

“A heartfelt thank you to Hulu for supporting the American Library Association’s efforts to provide our nation’s library professionals with tools and informational resources that fuel efforts to strengthen communities,” said ALA President Loida Garcia-Febo. “I wish Hulu and our nation’s library workers happy holidays and look forward to a new year filled with endless opportunities to transform lives through education and lifelong learning.”

 

As Hulu recognizes, today’s libraries are vibrant hubs of local communities that provide opportunities for digital literacy and delivery of new services that connect closely with patrons’ needs. Libraries strive to be resources for all community members to find what they need to help improve their quality of life.

ALA members are encouraged to view all of Hulu’s seasonal scenics and share http://bit.ly/SeasonsStreamings via their social media channels.

Additional information regarding the ALA and its invaluable work is available at ALA.org.
