Humboldt Library Foundation

The Humboldt Library Foundation

A strong public library system is the foundation upon which a community builds for the future. 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’s vision is to open the world of possibilities that can be found at the local library, so that every person builds a relationship with learning and libraries that lasts a lifetime.

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 may 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 this 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.
