In May 1997, the Lexington Public Library Foundation was established to seek funds that would enhance the quality and range of library services provided to the citizens of Fayette County.
For 15 years, the Lexington Public Library Foundation has conducted numerous successful fundraising events which provided funds for the Library to obtain and equip a new Outreach van and StoryTime Bus and develop a Mobile App . The Foundation has provided funding for the Digital Studio , Kentucky Room and more. Goals for 2013 include supporting the Library’s expansion of services and equipment at the Digital Studio, underwriting of the One Book One Bluegrass Night Circus Gala, and making possible expanded opportunities for staff development and recognition.
