The Library Foundation was initiated in 1984 with a bequest of $87,000 from Grace Kermode. Later bequests include $475,000 from the estate of Jess and Mary Doud in l996 and $28,000 from the estate of Richard F. Mullens, Jr. in 2011.
To the greatest extent possible, contributions to the Library Foundation are invested in a professionally-managed portfolio enabling the Library Foundation to provide funds to support a variety of upgrades to services now offered throughout the library system.
These include: state-of-the-art updates to computer and database programs; a Books by Mail service; programs that strengthen library user opportunities for children and young adults; Visionary Voices, featuring guest speakers and cultural events; hosting monthly Art in the Library presentations and receptions; plus many others.
The Library Foundation has a special public-private relationship with the community, providing individuals and groups a means by which they can give monetary support to one of our most cherished treasures -- The Napa City County Public Library.
