Support San Diego Libraries  



Members of The Friends of the San Diego Public Library System, The San Diego Public Library Foundation, and the San Diego Library Commission have come together to create a broad-based coalition of library supporters to share the impact of our community libraries.

The San Diego Public Library Foundation was created in 2002 when a group of motivated and concerned community leaders joined to focus their energy and attention on providing private support to build an outstanding library system in San Diego.

Since then, the Foundation has raised more than $130 million in private funds to augment and support library programs, collections, expansion and services.

The Friends of the San Diego Public Library is a branch-based group of committed volunteers in its 40th year of supporting the San Diego Public Library and its services and programs.

The San Diego Library Commission is a City committee that advises the Mayor and City Council on important library issues.

Together, these groups have come together to shed light on the library’s continued relevancy and need to invest in these great community assets.
