Gwinnett County Public Library Foundation
Libraries have never been just about books. They’ve been about access to information, inspiration, and amazement. They’re a gateway to a better future- not just for the individual, but for us all. The GCPL Foundation’s mission is to encourage private support in order to enhance funding for the following four key strategic program and capital areas:
Early Childhood Literacy
We believe every child has the potential to succeed in life, but the path to success begins long before they enter a classroom. Your investment in our Early Childhood Literacy Fund will allow the Gwinnett County Public Library to continue the essential work of supporting early literacy skills and training in the areas of our community that are most at-risk.
Robin Skelly from the Norcross Branch visited the Norcross First United Methodist Church preschool for a storytime and bag distribution. This school serves primarily spanish speaking families from the local apartment complexes. A parent reported that her son loved the book so much he was sleeping with it in his crib. She could hear him “reading” the book over the baby monitor.
Investment in imaginative and captivating environments provides not just a room for shelves but strategic spaces that foster community, innovation and contemplation. Your gift to the Engaging Spaces Fund allows capital improvements, whether by renovation or new construction, that provide spaces to foster that inspiration.
Technology & Collection Enhancement
The collection is not just an archive of old books and printed materials, but a vibrant and dynamic collection of traditional and new media. Your gift to the Technology & Collection Enhancement Fund ensures that the library can provide continuous free access to the best educational and informational resources of yesterday, today, and tomorrow.
Lifelong Learning & Community Enrichment
The library seeks to provide a spectrum of educational, cultural, vocational, and inspirational opportunities to learners of all ages and backgrounds. The foundation is committed to helping the library expand its current divers offering of author programs, lectures, presentations, classes, and workshops often through varied partnerships and collaborative initiatives with a range of private philanthropic support. You can help to expand these opportunities- whether by sponsoring an author program or series or by simply giving to the Lifelong Learning & Community Enrichment Fund.
