A group of committed library customers started the Lexington Public Library Foundation in 1997 with the goal to give Lexington Public Library the additional funding it needed to expand and improve services, programs and facilities. 

Since then, the Foundation has helped the Library with a wide variety of funding challenges:

The Library Foundation is governed by a Board of Directors whose focus is on raising money on behalf of the Library.  They meet regularly on the third Tuesday of each month at noon in the Board Room at the Central Library. 

Board of Directors


  • James L. Elliott (Jim), Chair
  • Jeanne Clark, Vice Chair
  • Louis Carmichael (Buzz), Treasurer
  • Yajaira Aich West, Secretary

Board Members

Lexington Public Library Foundation funds innovation within our public library system.  The Library's vision is for a community engaged in a lifetime of discovery, and private donations help Lexingtonians learn and play in dynamic new ways.
