The mission of the Athens-Limestone Public Library Foundation is to provide financial support to enhance the facilities, collections and programs of the Athens-Limestone Public Library.


Our history

The conversation was started by a small group of people in 1995 about the need for a new, larger and improved library for our community. Surveys were completed, studies done and experts were consulted. The Athens-Limestone Public Library Foundation was established by the Library Board of Trustees in 2005 as a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization to raise the necessary funds.

The ALPL Foundation Board is a small group of committed individuals who have dedicated many hours to raise the funds that have made our new library a reality.  The Foundation Board is excited about the future, and looks forward to the opportunity to continue to provide funding to support library operations and the purchase of needed materials.

The Athens-Limestone Public Library Foundation is a 501 (c)3 non-profit organization, and all contributions are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.

Your financial support is both needed and appreciated!  Please join us in the effort to make the Athens-Limestone Public Library the best that it can be.

”A Library outranks any other one thing a community can do to benefit its people. It is a never failing spring in the desert.”
