Your Impact

Older man and young girl at donor wall

Thanks in large part to our donors, the Foundation funds almost 30% of the Library’s annual operating budget. Without your support, the Library could not offer the quality services and programs the community has come to expect.

Thank you to ALL of our donors who support the Library’s core purpose to inspire imagination, ignite interests, and enable learning in our community.
