The Library Foundation is an independent not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization that secures private funding for the Topeka and Shawnee County Public Library.
Our purpose is to ensure the future of our library. We do this by helping secure financial resources to support collections, programs, services, technology and physical facilities of the library. The library depends on private donors to supplement and strengthen the public’s investment in this vital community resource.
Every gift is important, no matter the size.
