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

Investment in our libraries is a value statement about what we believe is important and about the tools we hope to provide our children as they seek lives of independence in a civic-minded democracy.”
