Who We Are
Our Vision and Mission
The High Plains Library District Friends & Foundation is a 503(c)3 non-profit established to support the High Plains Library District. The mission of the High Plains Library District Friends & Foundation is to build a community of library lovers through increased collaboration, philanthropy, volunteer engagement, awareness and advocacy for the libraries of the High Plains Library District.
Our Role in Our Community
We aim to build a community of library lovers within Northern Colorado by gathering funding for HPLD programs and services. With more than 100,000 card holders in the District we support, we provide equitable access to resources for the adults, young adults, and children within our community. Through donations from library lovers like you, we address emerging needs in our community, bolster literacy rates among our youth, and support literary programming to engage authors in our community.

Why Do We Love Our Library?
“I love my library because it provides an abundance of free resources like Kanopy, Hoopla, books and e-books, that help me listen to a new story or learn something new wherever I am. ”
— Niamh Mercer, Foundation Director
