The Boone County Public Library Foundation, officially established in Summer 2022, is a non-profit, tax exempt 501(c)(3) charitable organization. 

Contributions to The Library Foundation will enhance and support our mission statement (Discover. Explore. Experience. A lifetime of learning.) beyond the means of public funding. The Foundation and the Library will work together, in a strong partnership, to determine where private funds can be leveraged to have the greatest impact.

This year’s key initiatives:

Early Childhood Literacy/Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library
The Imagination Library sends a free book to every child in Boone County, ages birth to 5 years, to help support kindergarten readiness.

Boone County Borderlands Archive & History Center at BCPL
The nationally recognized Archive & History Center researches a wide variety of regional history topics.

Capital Projects
Capital projects planned for the next 20 years are aimed to meet the needs of the community for years to come.

In addition to the above, general donations can be used for programs, collections, summer reading, or other areas when needs are identified.
