20thannivCelebrate our 20th Anniversary! 

On May 20th, the Foundation celebrated 20 years of supporting the community!  Stay tuned for our upcoming fundraising campaign.

Great libraries cannot be sustained on public funding alone. In 1997, a group of far-sighted citizens in Chapel Hill decided it was time to create a foundation to support our great library.

The Chapel Hill Public Library Foundation is a non-profit, tax-exempt 501 (c)(3) organization that seeks private sector support to supplement tax-based funding for the Library.

We believe in the power of public libraries to change lives. Your help can help keep our Library strong, continuing to enrich the lives of everyone in the community.

The Foundation is dedicated to ensuring the excellence of our Library for today and for many tomorrows to come.

Your Help Makes a Difference!
