What brings you to Phoenix Public Library?

Children come to pick out a book and enter a new world. Teens rediscover the Library as a cool place to meet friends and do homework. Adults learn to use a computer and improve skills that help them find better jobs.

The Foundation was created in 1997 to raise money for Library programs and services. We support reading programs for children and adults, purchase computers and fund programs that help people learn to use technology, and furnish spaces that make the Library a great place to curl up with a good book.

While tax dollars keep the lights on, buildings open, and materials on the shelves, the Library can be so much more. That’s what the Foundation does — it makes a good library a great one — with your help.

The mission of the Phoenix Public Library Foundation is to support life-long learning for a stronger community.
