What We Do


Can you imagine a world without your library?

We connect those who value the library to opportunities to financially support its on-going operations—enhancing its impact on our community and ensuring its long-term vitality.

Provide Books for Everyone

Kids, adults and seniors. The Foundation helps maintain a first-class collection of books and other materials. Our support helps build a treasured collection that offers a window to the world, one that creates and sustains a lifelong love of reading.

Improve Access to Technology and Information

From equipping thousands of library users with the technology necessary to participate in the digital age to bookmobiles reaching underserved seniors and at-risk youth, Foundation funding helps the library meet people where and when they need it most.

Enhance Social Connections

Whether it’s a cultural celebration, an author talk about the importance of democracy or a class on the need for self-care, we support the library in helping people feel less isolated, more connected and empowered to be active citizens!

Create 21st Century Spaces

We believe the citizens of Baltimore County deserve library spaces that feel welcoming and keep pace with modern demands. Updates are needed across the system and the Foundation is building the support to help make our libraries the spaces that transform the lives of those who use them.
