What is the Library Fund?

 

The Library Fund consists of monies given as gifts and memorials or collected as fines. In addition to city funding, the library is supported by the Friends of the Library, a non-profit organization composed of local, civic-minded residents, which annually sponsor fund raising events for the benefit of the Library System. 

These funds cannot be used by the Library Board without the Friends’ consent. 

The library is also supported by the Library Foundation which seeks to supplement public funding with private financial support by soliciting annual donations, receiving bequests from dedicated library supporters and sponsoring fundraising events on the library’s behalf.
