Public Library (CPL) Foundation seeks contributions to support
the library's important collection of books and materials and to
increase learning opportunities for the City's growing population.
The Library Foundation was incorporated in 1998 as a tax-exempt,

to provide funding that complements the City's support for continued
operation of the library. It is operated by a Board of Directors

of the effort to build a secure future for our public library, the
Foundation has received generous grants and donations from organizations

free public access to resources that inspire, educate, and entertain.
We invite you to join with us by contributing private dollars to
create a funding partnership that will make an investment in the
future of our community. Through the Foundation you can help make
the difference between a good library and a great library.
