Raised for Nonprofits

Friends & Foundation of the Arlington Public Library

The mission of the Friends & Foundation of the Arlington Public Library is to bring together and maintain an organization of persons interested in books and libraries, facilities and needs; promote public awareness and community support for the Arlington Public Library System and its educational activities; and engage in fundraising activities on behalf of the Arlington Public Library System.
Libraries play an important role in communities. Children access tools needed to succeed in school. Families learn a new language together. Job seekers access resources to become more competitive in the workforce. Funds raised through the 2017 North Texas Giving Day will be used to help secure the furniture, fixtures, equipment, and technology that will make Arlington's new George W. Hawkes Downtown Library (http://arlingtonlibrary.org/building-library-tomorrow/) a vibrant and engaging destination for individuals from all walks of life.
