You can make your community stronger!

Libraries strengthen communities by connecting individuals with resources that enrich and improve lives.

But even in a city that loves its libraries, public funding just isn’t enough for libraries to provide all the important resources that residents seek.

The Library, part of the City of Saint Paul, depends on The Friends to support those resources. As an independent nonprofit, The Friends invests in libraries so that they, and the communities they serve, thrive. We invest through advocacy, fundraising, and cultural programming.

And we need your help.

When you give to The Friends, you help people to connect to resources that enrich and improve lives: homework help for kids, digital literacy skills for adults, books to inspire, and tools for individuals of all backgrounds to go further. This is how lives change, and this is how communities grow stronger.

Invest in Your Community. Invest in Your Library.

Thank you for your generous support!
