Supporting the mission of the

Plainfield Public Library

The Plainfield Public Library Foundation formed in 1997. It primarily solicits endowments, bequests, charitable remainder trusts, and sponsors community fundraising events for the Library. The Foundation is a 501(c)3 charitable organization.

Donations made to the Foundation are tax-deductible. The Plainfield Public Library Foundation is administered by a volunteer board, which minimizes overhead and administrative costs and allows the library to receive the maximum benefit from each donation.

The Plainfield Public Library Foundation board has chosen to focus financial support on providing the community with state-of-the-art technology in the library. The Foundation has purchased computers, scanners, printers and a telephone system with voicemail for the library.

Like all public institutions in our area, the Plainfield Library strives to stretch its tax dollars to cover the demands of serving a rapidly growing community. Increasing demands for additional services, computer hardware, software, equipment, materials, service hours, and competitive salaries are ongoing. Support from the Plainfield Public Library Foundation helps the Plainfield Public Library District achieve its mission: Educate – Captivate – Connect.
