The Houston Public Library is the great equalizer in Houston, creating opportunities and accessibility for all.
Through advocacy and fundraising, the Houston Public Library Foundation supports the Houston Public Library’s wide range of initiatives with particular emphasis on its neighborhood libraries and their community programs.
What we do
Your Houston Public Library links people to the world, through educational, recreational, and cultural programs for persons of all ages, ethnicities, and life stages.
The City of Houston’s budget does not support any of the Library’s program activities.
Library programs exist through the generosity of individuals, foundations, organizations, and businesses who share our collective belief in the tremendous power of lifelong learning.
The Houston Library Foundation matches donors with programs, solutions and opportunities that the Houston Public Library offers.
Through these collaborative efforts, we are able to expand the services of resources and programs in Houston.
