Mission Statement

The Summit County Library Foundation (the Foundation) serves as an advocate for the Summit County Library System (the Library) and provides financial support beyond the Library's normal operating expenditures, when unanticipated needs arise, and for capital projects.

Organization History

The Foundation was established in 1990 to raise funds for the Library, and was granted 501(c)(3) status on August 26, 1991. Since inception, the Foundation provided funds to the Library for various needs where County funding was unavailable.

In September 2010, the existing Foundation Board created a task force to spearhead fundraising efforts for the expansion / construction of the South Branch (Breckenridge) Library. This process resulted in electing a new Foundation Board and approving revised Bylaws in April 2011.

The Foundation provides assistance to the Library by funding programs and expenditures that are unexpected or where County funds are limited or nonexistent, and capital fundraising. The Foundation is working with the Library in anticipation of the next capital project.

The Foundation has an all-volunteer board that provided 316 and 408 volunteer hours during fiscal years ended June 30, 2019 and 2018, respectively.

Testimonials

Summit County and the Summit County Library are planning to expand the North Branch Library in Silverthorne, CO and the Main Branch in Frisco, CO. The Summit County Library Foundation supports this effort and has begun a capital campaign to help raise funds to make the expansion of North Branch and Main Branch a reality and make the facilities an integral part of Silverthorne's and Frisco's future.

A satisfaction survey conducted by the Summit County Library showed that the patrons of the North Branch facility feel it needs:
• More small meeting rooms
• More space for teens
• Additional quiet spaces
• Additional spaces for collaboration and meeting with others
• Larger children's area
• Additional areas for shelving books/DVDs/magazines
• Additional parking
• Self-check machines to check out library materials

The responses from the same survey showed that patrons of the Main Branch facility feel it needs:

• Additional small meeting rooms
• Additional quiet spaces
• Additional spaces for collaboration and meeting with others
• Larger teen area
• Self-check machines to check out library materials

Your donation to the North Branch and Main Branch expansions would help fund meeting rooms for additional programming for all ages and include more space for children and teens so they may participate in a variety of programs that will enrich their lives. Your donation will assist in making these two libraries an important part of these communities and help to keep pace with the future growth of Silverthorne and Frisco. Please be a part of this exciting opportunity by giving your donations and support to this expansion of North Branch and Main Branch!
