Why does LA County Library matter?
LA County Library brings people together, solves community problems, and provides access to a lifetime of learning...free of charge.
Your library welcomes everyone – toddlers, teens, struggling readers, school kids of all ages, families, the homeless, older adults, veterans.
Reading matters. Strong readers get higher paying jobs. And if a child isn’t reading at grade level in third grade, they probably won’t graduate high school…or achieve future success.
LA County Library – your library – enriches and empowers people’s lives.
Don’t my taxes pay for the Library?
Library programs and services cost a lot. And public funds don’t cover it all. That’s why your gift to the Library Foundation matters. You help bridge the gap.
Your tax-deductible gift to LA County Library Foundation is an investment.
Studies show that a $1 investment in libraries returns $4 or more to your community.
The nonprofit LA County Library Foundation raises funds and creates partnerships that strengthen and support LA County Library.
