Our Work

Library Foundation supporters broaden the Library’s impact in the community.


…adults in San Diego have learned to read and write with support from READ/​San Diego.


Since 2013, the Library Foundation and our partners have successfully advocated for a 66% increase in the library’s operating budget.


…children and teens participated in the 2023 Summer Reading Program and returned to school more confident and ready to learn.
