Support the Library

For more than a century, the public library has been one of the city's most valued assets, sustaining and improving the quality of life and education in D.C.

Private support makes the difference between what the library would provide if it relied solely on tax revenue, and the excellent programs and services it does provide for our city. Donated time and money enable the library to purchase additional books, upgrade and replace equipment and expand our programming for children.
