Friends & Foundation

Welcome to the LPL Friends & Foundation

The Lawrence Public Library Friends & Foundation (LPLFF for short) does a lot and we have a lot of fun doing it. Libraries transform communities through access to information, resources, and technology, and you can help support and sustain our efforts at any level, from donating books, making a financial contribution, or including the library in your estate plan. Learn more here.

Over 10,000 Lawrence kids don't have a library card.

Not all children in our community have easy access to the library, from lack of transportation and time, to housing insecurity and language barriers. A library card can be used at a distance to access online learning tools, eBooks, and audiobooks — even to borrow laptops and hotspots for easy pick-up.

Your gift of $10 per month supports neighborhood outreach that connects students to books, technology, homework help, and more.
