The Lake County Public Library Foundation is an independent, non-profit organization that was established in 1984 by people who were concerned about the quality of library service in their community. The Foundation's mission is to administer funds received and provide a continuing source of income for the library through annual special events such as the spring Literary Tea and the Read-a-Thon. The money raised is invested, and only the interest is spent to benefit the library.
Through the interest, the Foundation is able to provide books and materials that go beyond what is obtainable through traditional tax base funding. Foundation funding enhances, and does not supplant, the public funding received by the Lake County Public Library.
