Ways To Give

Your support helps us improve the quality of life of our neighbors. Your active generosity helps us build a community of library lovers. All across Northern Colorado, our libraries are responding to the needs of the communities we serve. Library usage across the nation is greater than ever before – bursting at the seams with entrepreneurs, educators, care givers, children and families.

 

The High Plains Library District Friends & Foundation provides a stable funding source for programs and services when tax dollars aren’t enough. The Foundation provides funding assistance with early literacy programming, capital projects including renovations and additions, as well as new library construction, Summer Reading programs, our Writer in Residence program and much more.
