Who We Are

Mission and Vision:

A strong public library system is the foundation upon which a community builds for the future. The Humboldt Library Foundation rallies support across our diverse county to enhance programs and learning opportunities in the Humboldt County Library system. The foundation’s vision is to open the world of possibilities that can be found at the local library, so that every person builds a relationship with learning and libraries that lasts a lifetime.

Our mission is to raise funds and make grants to the library that are used to:

  • Improve the quality of library services countywide
  • Expand the use of technology
  • Sponsor cultural and educational offerings

The Humboldt Library Foundation has also established the HLF Endowment Fund to realize this vision and make sure that enhanced access to public library materials and services are provided for in the future. See how you can become a member of the HLF Legacy Circle and provide library funding in perpetuity.

The Humboldt Library Foundation is a 501 (c)(3) charitable organization. Donations to HLF are tax-deductible (Tax ID 91-1879359).
