Our Work

We strengthen communities by supporting and advocating for San Diego Public Libraries

Our support is focused on the areas most crucial to San Diegans’ success in school, in the workplace, and in the community.

Shop for a cause

The Library Shop is a well-curated nonprofit book & gift shop catering to librarians, library lovers, literary obsessives and book nerds inside the Downtown Central Library. Proceeds support the entire San Diego Public Library System.

From our community

Libraries are one of the few places where people are treated with dignity and given access, all without cost, no matter where they sit on the social ladder.”
