Poudre River Library Trust

A nonprofit organization

The Poudre River Library Trust supports the capital project needs of the Poudre River Public Library District. You can support the Library Trust and District all year long here at Colorado Gives 365! 

From January - October, you can donate to help grow the Trust's Endowment or their unrestricted General Fund for future capital needs. Just click the donate button and choose your preference!

During November and December the Trust fundraises for specific capital projects requested by the Library District in addition to the Endowment. In 2022 they helped fund an Electric Book Bike and an Electric Book Van, both crucial components of the Library's outreach programs.

Background Statement

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.
