Webster Library Foundation

The Webster Library Foundation began in 2010 with bequests from individuals like you who value their library. The Foundation seeks to ensure that your neighborhood library continues to thrive and provide the quality materials and dedicated service long into Webster’s future. As state and local governments struggle with budget constraints, we have been forced to rely more and more on the generosity of our community. With your direct donation today or a planned future bequest, your generous legacy will live on by strengthening your library’s future one story at a time.

Donations to the Webster Public Library Foundation help support large-scale projects that improve our community’s experience using the library and ensure the library’s ability to meet our community’s changing needs. The Foundation has supported the creation of One Senior Place, put computers in the Teen Area, and strengthened the library’s ebook collection.

The Friends of the Webster Library and the Webster Public Library Foundation are 501(c)(3) organizations.
