Humboldt Library Foundation


The Humboldt Library Foundation

The Humboldt Library Foundation, an independent nonprofit group, rallies support across our diverse county to enhance programs and learning opportunities in the Humboldt County Library system. 

The Foundation raises funds and makes grants to the library that are used to:

  • Improve the quality of library services countywide;
  • Expand the use of technology;
  • Sponsor cultural and educational offerings.

  • Buy-a-Book Campaign



    The Humboldt Library Foundation project called the Buy-a-Book campaign offers you the opportunity to give a donation specifically for buying books for the library. You can ‘buy’ a book or purchase a ‘shelf’ by simply making a donation. A book plate with your name or that of a friend or family member you wish to honor can be placed in the book or books the library purchases with your donation.

    The Endowment Fund


    The Foundation has also established the HLF Endowment Fund to realize their vision and make sure that enhanced access to public library materials and services are provided for in the future. See how you can become a member of the HLF Legacy Circle and provide library funding in perpetuity.
