Atlanta-Fulton Public Library Foundation



The library opens minds, enriches lives and brings our community together. As our world changes, our libraries face new challenges. That is why your help is so important. Your gifts fill empty shelves, expand programs for communities and provide access to technology. Your gifts also enhance services to children, teens, adults and people with special needs.

To invest in the library and our community, Donate Now. Be a part of building a world-class library system.

Creating a World-Class Library System

About the Foundation
The Atlanta-Fulton Public Library Foundation was established in 1988 by a small group of far-sighted citizens who understood that a great library wouldn't be possible through public funding alone.

The Foundation has continued its original vision of generating private-sector support to supplement tax-based funding. The result has been improved collections, expanded programs and enhanced services. But the credit for the Foundation's impact belongs entirely to the people of Atlanta. Over the years, thousands of generous individuals, governments, corporations and foundations have demonstrated their deep commitment to Atlanta's libraries by donating to the Foundation.
