Celebrating 130 Years of Service

The Lodi Public Library Foundation was established in 1999 to support the Lodi Public Library’s education and literary mission.  With the assistance of community members and businesses the Foundation “fills the gap” between available public funds and the needs of the Library.

Foundation donors have helped to establish, and continue to support, many of the Library’s innovative literary programs, such as the Homework Help Program, Paws to Read, Children’s Story Time, Computer Learning Center, Adult Literacy Program, Access to E-books and online access to Ancestry.com, and much more.  The Foundation also provides funding towards much-needed library renovations and expansions in special use areas, such as the Rott Family Children’s section, the Children’s Homework Help room, and the newly constructed Teens@201 special use area.
