Who We Are

The Contra Costa County Library provides a wealth of services, programming, and resources to our diverse community. While the County provides a base level of funding for operations, generous contributions from foundations, corporations, and individuals enable the library to expand and innovate to meet the dynamic needs of our communities. Every contribution brings more robustness and parity to the library system, while ensuring that the library remains free and accessible to all.

Contra Costa County’s libraries are trusted and valued institutions uniquely positioned to improve and enhance the lives of residents. The Foundation’s goal is to publicize the County Library’s achievements, advocate for its potential, build community partnerships, and attract funding to bridge equity gaps amongst its branches.
