Sustainable Library Funding

Sustainable Library Funding

Over the last few years, we have been proud to fund 90% of the Boulder Public Library programs. A library needs more than just programs; however, it requires a place to put on those programs—physical spaces that match the first-class offerings that the library provides. The Foundation has championed a capital campaign to support the Boulder Library system’s expansion with the new state-of-the-art NoBo Library branch.

2020 Year of Impact

To say that it was a challenging year would be an understatement at best, but we were reminded that we find strength in our community in times of crisis. Rather than retreating into isolation, we saw donors and friends like you step up to support, serve, and make an impact when our library and librarians needed it the most. In 2021, we are firmly committed to continuing our efforts to impact our community’s hearts and lives, and we look forward to you being a part of our story.

As a result, 70% of the library staff have been furloughed until at least June 28th, 2020. Always eager and ready to help, our beloved librarians could use a helping hand, now more than ever, from the greater Boulder community.
