What We Do

The Foundation’s mission is to provide support to the Council Bluffs Public Library so it can enhance and enrich library facilities, services, and programs for the citizens it serves. The Foundation compliments but does not supplant the cities responsibility for funding library services. In 2021, Foundation funded over $200,000 for projects, programs, and equipment. Projects include a remodel of the Library’s Youth Department. The remodel created interactive areas for dramatic and collaborative play between youth & caregivers, gave the furniture an upgrade, and funded a beautiful pollinator mural! Programs supported by the Foundation include the Council Bluffs Public Library Speaker Series, the One Community Reads Program, Pollinator Palooza, and the Library’s Dia Des Los Muertos celebration. The Foundation also funded new and upgrade sewing equipment in the Makerspace and provides regular funding for Library-wide equipment updates.
