Berkeley Public Library Foundation

The Foundation

The purpose of the Berkeley Public Library Foundation is to complement the public’s investment in its community libraries by sustaining the excellence of the library’s buildings, services, collections, and programs through a fundraising program that allows the library to thrive and provides flexibility to meet changing needs.

The Foundation also advocates on behalf of the library to increase awareness that it is a living, evolving institution vital to our diverse community.
