The Summit County Library Foundation's mission is to serve as an advocate for the Summit County Library System and to provide financial support to support and enhance the libraries' rich diversity of resources and programming for generations to come.
The Summit County Library Foundation (SCLF) invites everyone to help write the next chapter of the Summit County Library story by donating to the building campaign. The Capital Campaign will support renovations to the Main Library in Frisco and the North Branch in Silverthorne. The remodel of the Main Library was completed in 2021 and the North Branch expansion and remodel is expected to be completed by the end of 2023.
The SCLF appreciates the support of the Summit County community in this capital campaign, as these updated and larger spaces will better serve the diverse social, educational, and economic needs of the citizens in our county.
