About the Foundation

Established in 1984 as a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation, the Clearwater Library Foundation has a long history of providing significant monetary contributions to the Clearwater Public Library System, thereby, enriching and enhancing the collections, programs and services provided to the community.

Over the years the Foundation has funded the purchase of special collections, thousands of books, youth service programs, a puppet theatre/stage, memorial & honor book tributes, preservation of the Clearwater Sun newspaper, a Teen Summer Intern Program, in addition to numerous enhancements for the branch libraries and the new Main Library.

The Foundation is a membership organization dependent solely on member dues and donor contributions. Your membership or contribution will assist the Foundation to continue as an important factor in the excellent quality of the Clearwater Library System. It will also speak volumes about your commitment to family, education and the quality of life in our community.
