Organization History

The Poudre River Library Trust, Inc. was founded in 1999 by a dedicated group of library supporters. Trust board members, honorary board members and a small group of other private citizens committed start-up funds to establish the Trust.

The Trust has established a fund to ensure that the Poudre River Public Library District can respond to the increasing demands of an inquisitive, progressive and multicultural information society.
