As the fundraising partner of the Bozeman Public Library, the Library Foundation is an active community of supporters whose mission is to provide financial support for capital improvements and to increase and enhance the quality of services, programs, and community events offered by the Library. The Bozeman Public Library Foundation raises resources for vital programs such as Summer Reading, the Bookmobile, Children’s Festival of the Book, and One Book One Bozeman. We also fund many initiatives to engage readers of all ages, promote lifelong learning, and improve the Library campus. We do this by securing and managing donations from individuals, businesses, and foundations to support the Library beyond what tax dollars provide. 

The Foundation is a not-for-profit corporation 501(c)(3) established in 1983 and governed by a volunteer board of directors. A professional staff raises and administers gifts and ensures the quality and effectiveness of funded programs.
