For every $1 spent on a library, a community sees an average of $4 in return.

The Tulare Library Foundation has pledged to raise $1 Million to partially underwrite the construction cost of the new library. Through grants and private donations more than $350,000 has already been raised. Donations over $500 will be reflected on a beautiful Donor Wall in the main lobby of the library which is currently under construction.

Your ongoing support allows the Tulare Public Library to retain and expand their services. We hope that you will see that a donation pays dividends in the success of our local community.

Pledges are also being accepted to underwrite the partial cost of the construction of specific rooms in the library. This provides you with the opportunity to name one and leave a lasting impression on all who will benefit from that space. We would like to thank those who have already funded a room in our new library.
