About the Foundation
Our Vision: The Foundation envisions the Library as a cornerstone of our community’s high quality of life through exceptional visitor experiences and innovative programs, including the arts, children’s events, music, educational opportunities, and other current or cultural programs.
Our Mission: The Foundation seeks to increase and enhance the quality of services, programs, and community events offered by the Bozeman Public Library, benefiting the residents and communities it serves, while advocating for private and public support of the Library.
The Bozeman Public Library Foundation has successfully transitioned from the decade-long building capital campaign to providing additional programs, services, and support to the Bozeman Public Library above and beyond the operational budget it receives from the City of Bozeman. The recipient of tremendous support and recognition from the community, the Foundation has created several flagship programs to enhance the Library’s offerings, such as One Book – One Bozeman, Exploring the Arts, and the Children’s Festival of the Book.
We seek to work with other community stakeholders to help keep the Library relevant in the changing technological world. Led by a Board of dedicated community members, the Foundation's strategic goals include 1) developing and implementing enrichment programs and services; 2) supporting the Library's technology needs and services; and 3) endowment building.
Help us make our Library the community's gathering place, it's cultural living room open to everyone.
