The Berkeley Public Library Foundation amplifies the public investment to make a great public library extraordinary.
The Foundation raises funds to ensure the excellence of the buildings, services, collections, and programs at all five
locations of Berkeley Public Library. The BPLF supports the Library’s strategic plan and advocates for the Library’s
mission to advance literacy in all its forms. We help fund new ideas and innovations to strengthen the Library’s ability to
serve the diverse and changing needs of our multicultural community.
