The St. Joseph Public Library Foundation is an independent, non-profit organization promoting private donations to ensure the library’s growth toward excellence. The Board meets quarterly.
Help the Foundation create an endowment to:
- Enhance library services
- Augment library resources
- Contribute to capital resources
Our most recent donation to the library is helping the Downtown branch become the first Family Place Library™ in Missouri.
The St. Joseph Public Library serves the community as a center for information, recreation, culture and education. From babies to retirees, students to business owners, people from all segments of the community come to the St. Joseph Public Library to find practical answers, to develop talents, to stretch the imagination and simply to enjoy the beautiful facilities.
