Cedar Rapids Public Library Foundation
The Cedar Rapids Public Library Foundation is the philanthropic
vehicle helping the Library achieve its goals and meet community needs.
Foundation-funded programs and services help invest in young minds through teen
engagement programs, preschool outreach, and Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library
for infants and toddlers. The Foundation also supports our Library’s efforts to
strengthen community through its intergenerational Summer Dare reading program,
Library Everywhere outreach, and senior book clubs. Less visible, but impactful
Foundation support includes websites and databases while keeping fresh the
library’s collection of books and materials.
