The King County Library System (KCLS) Foundation provides support beyond public funding for innovative KCLS programs and projects. Since 1995, they have raised over $11 million to support literacy, learning, and libraries. Programs such as Summer Reading, ideaX, and Let’s READ! are made possible in part by the generosity of donors like you. KCLS Foundation-funded programs reach out and encourage King County residents of all ages to enjoy reading and learning. King County Library System Foundation and King County Library System work in tandem to ensure that long-standing, successful library programs and new, innovative programs can meet the rising needs of patrons and greater community. The mission of KCLS is to provide free, open, and equal access to ideas and information to all members of the community. KCLSF’s mission is to promote literacy, learning, and libraries. Together KCLSF and KCLS provide a valuable community service leveraging county tax dollars that provide the infrastructure and services with additional funding from individuals, foundations, and corporations that go beyond public funding to expand and enrich library programs.
