Our Foundation

The Foundation for Baltimore County Public Library provides additional resources to enrich the library’s commitment to empower the citizens of Baltimore County to explore, learn, create and connect. The Foundation for BCPL views reading as a critical and fundamental tool for overall connection to the community, development of curiosity and exploration of the world. The Foundation motivates all customers of BCPL, regardless of age or economic circumstance, to embrace reading. The Foundation’s support of the library is made possible by contributions by individuals, businesses and other foundations. Your donation provides funding for a range of activities to promote a love of learning, the development of early childhood literacy and to continue lifelong learning for children and adults.
