Impact

The Durham Library Foundation was founded as a 501 (c) 3 organization devoted to developing and encouraging long-term financial health and growth of the Durham County Library.

The Foundation solicits gifts from many sources, including those not available to a government-funded library.  Private contributions are used to fund programs and improvements that the library could not otherwise afford, and those funds have ensured an extraordinary level of service for Durham County citizens.
