Why give to the Sno-Isle Libraries Foundation?
As the fundraising arm of the library system, the Sno-Isle Libraries Foundation uses private donations to fund innovative and equitable programs throughout Sno-Isle Libraries District's 23 libraries in Snohomish and Island Counties. We invest each and every donated dollar back into our libraries by funding key building improvements and inspiring educational programs.
Programs supported by the Foundation include capital projects, Sno-Isle Libraries' book collection, new Express Lockers at the Monroe and Camano Island Libraries, inspirational community events like Third Graders Read Together and the Trudy Sundberg Lecture Series, Sno-Isle's popular Bookmobile, demonstration libraries in communities without established library locations like the Mariner and Lakewood/Smokey Point Libraries, and so much more!
These and many other important initiatives would not be possible without the generosity of dedicated individuals and community and business partners like you. Thank you for supporting Sno-Isle Libraries Foundation's mission to expand the reach of library services, help create inspiring community spaces, and ensure the bright future of our libraries.
