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.

2021 6-7 LPLFF Matching Challenge Howie webpage header

Summer Matching Challenge

Howie has thrived for over a decade at the library solely from book sale purchases and gifts to the LPLFF. She has tankmates of her own and saltwater neighbors around the corner, all of whom get cared for and fed from the spare change you drop into the Youth Services fish fund box!

Can you help us feed Howie, give books to kids, supply digital downloads, and support inclusive programing? Be a Page Turner and become part of a special group of monthly library donors that understands our need for steady and reliable funding. Just to sweeten the deal, a generous Lawrence family will match your gift dollar-for-dollar.
