Public libraries are community hubs for information, technology, cultural exploration, and community connection. The Library Foundation funds a variety of literacy projects, building improvements, and librarian-led innovations.
Reading Is Instrumental is the Library’s musical storytime series co-produced by the Library Foundation and the Berkeley Symphony. An all-star lineup reads favorite children’s books accompanied by symphonic musicians.
We are actively establishing hands-on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) literacy projects for all ages using the nationally acclaimed Cornerstones of Science model for public libraries.
