Beloit Public Library Foundation

Beloit Public Library Foundation raises funds to continuously improve, promote and support Beloit Public Library. Your gifts allow us to take the library beyond city funding to a new level of excellence.

The Foundation is a nonprofit organization that promotes literacy, education, employment, and lifelong learning through equal access to free resources for everyone in our diverse community. Our work relies on charitable donations, corporate sponsorships, grants, fundraising events, and other generous investments to support Beloit Public Library today, tomorrow and well into the future.

Your gift makes it possible for Beloit Public Library to be even more responsive to the needs of our community. Thank you for giving generously.
