About the Foundation
The mission of the Sonoma County Public Library Foundation is to strengthen the ability of the Sonoma County Library to serve our community by raising funds to support the library, and to promote the use of library resources, enthusiasm for reading, and increased literacy for all Sonoma County residents.
With private financial support, the Foundation expects to enhance, not replace the Library's current funding system. In recent years, the Library Foundation has supported the following projects:
In addition, we are currently raising funds to enhance the Library's Spanish-language collection.
The Foundation has been established as a California nonprofit public benefit corporation and has been designated a 501 (c)(3) by the IRS. Managed by the Board of Directors, the Foundation is wholly independent of the Library and its Commission.

You may direct that your donation be used for the benefit of a particular library in Sonoma County. You may also designate other specific uses, such as areas of the Library's collection, types of library materials, or specific services.
If you decide to direct a specific use for your gift, you will find it helpful to confer in advance with Foundation or Library officials.
