The Johnson County Public Library Foundation was created in 2016 in order to fund innovative enhancements to the library's programs and services.
Support the Foundation
The JCPL Foundation is a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. Your tax-deductible donation helps grow the library for the next generation of readers & learners.
If you'd like to contact the Foundation, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Who we are
The Foundation's volunteer board solicits donations from members of the Johnson County community who want to help their library do more of what they do best - connecting people, resources and experiences.
How we help
The Library Foundation is committed to expanding JCPL's Summer Learning Program - a yearly all-ages program that encourages families to read, create and discover together all summer long. The Summer Learning Program supports the development of early literacy skills, prevents learning loss in school-age children, and brings readers of all ages together with fun activities and great prizes.
Thousands of Johnson County residents participate in the Summer Learning Program every year, and you can help us reach even more with a donation to the Library Foundation. The 2017 program's theme is "Build a Better World." Your donation will help us build a fun and enriching experience for our family of readers.
