What We Do

The Berkeley Public Library Foundation raises private contributions that boost our strong public funding. Donors to our recent Neighborhood Libraries Campaign generously gave more than $3 million to outfit the renewed Claremont, North, South, and West branches.

Your donations give our libraries the power to try new ideas and to bring everyone in our community into the library and into the future together.
