You + the Library + the Library Foundation

= A Winning Team

LA County Library Foundation has partnered with LA County Library for more than 35 years.  The Foundation, founded in 1982, is governed by a Board of Directors that includes the Library Director.


LA County Library Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization that raises funds to strengthen and support LA County Library and its programs, resources and services.

You might be surprised to learn that public dollars don’t cover all the Library’s costs. That’s where your donation to the Library Foundation comes in. You help bridge that gap.

Your donation to the Library Foundation is an investment in LA County Library and your community.

  • You are investing in literacy and lifelong learning.

  • You are investing in a stronger workforce.

  • You are investing in creativity.

  • You are investing in a more inclusive and culturally aware community.

You are investing in equal and free access to opportunities for success for 3.4 million users of LA County's 86 libraries and programs, resources, and services that extend far beyond library walls.

Thank you!
