Whatcom County Library Foundation Print

The mission of the Whatcom County Library Foundation, a non-profit organization founded in 2005, is to promote and enhance the libraries in the Whatcom County Library System through program and capital project funding.  We endeavor to augment, not replace, tax-based support for our libraries through gifts, grants, and bequests from individuals and organizations.  Our aims are to foster intellectual freedom and First Amendment rights and to encourage life-long learning.

Together with the Friends of the Library groups, which are organized in each community to promote the local branch of the library, the Foundation demonstrates local support of, and value placed on area library service.
