Des Moines Public Library Foundation
The Des Moines Public Library Foundation supports and enriches the capabilities, resources, and services of the Des Moines Public Library system. We accomplish our mission through fundraising, advocacy, and innovative programs that benefit our diverse community and promote greater awareness of the Library's valuable resources. Our support complements, but does not supplant the city's responsibility for funding the Des Moines Public Library's operations.
The Library foundation continues to enhance the Des Moines Public Library system as a center for literary and cultural learning of the highest caliber, enriching the lives of the people it serves, thanks to the generosity of our committed donors, foundations, and corporations.
The Foundation's support strengthens the library's place among the nation's preeminent public libraries and enables the Library system to maintain its status as an important educational and cultural institution in Des Moines.
* It is important to note that Foundation funds are not used to
replace or supplant city funding.
