About the Laramie County Library Foundation
The Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit community-based organization. To date, the Foundation has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars in funding for the System to support building a new facility, innovative programming and services and the expansion of our award-winning collections. Without our generous donors, the System could not meet the expectations of library patrons.
Whatever the cost of our libraries, the price is cheap compared to that of an ignorant nation.
