Corporate and Foundation Giving and Sponsorship
The Library Foundation offers a number of sponsorship opportunities for LFPL programs targeted at adults, teens, children and families.
The Children’s Literacy Fund is a Library Foundation initiative to support key youth programs offered by LFPL in need of financial support. Programs made possible by the Children’s Literacy Fund served nearly 75,000 children last year.
- Summer Reading Program — available to children ages birth to 12th grade, served more than 43,000 children in 2019. Special events and incentives during this 10-week program combat the “summer slide” and encourage parental engagement.
- 1000 Books Before Kindergarten Challenge — ensuring children are ready for their first day of school not just in reading, but by providing opportunities for socio-emotional development.
- Author events — hosting high-profile children’s and teen authors at the library.
- Pop-up storytimes — opportunities to promote LFPL and its talented staff storytellers at farmer’s markets, local festivals, neighborhood parties and other events.
Sponsors of the Children’s Literacy Fund make these programs possible and directly impact children in our community by providing opportunities for success.
Additionally, sponsorships for adult programs are also available, including the How-To Festival, Craig Buthod Author Series, Books & Brews 502 and more.
