We raise funds for programs and capital improvements for libraries. We advocate for public support funding for libraries. Through sales and donations we place nearly one million books into the hands of readers each year. We offer a broad range of programs and partnerships to support a literate community. We help grow new ideas and support an ever-improving library system to meet the changing needs of the community
