Ways to Give

The Case for Making a Positive Difference Through Giving 

The San Ramon Library Foundation (SRLF) was founded in 1985 and prides itself as the prime nonprofit supporter of the two fabulous community libraries, the San Ramon Library and the Dougherty Station Library, located in San Ramon. The two libraries in San Ramon provide a healthy environment for people of all ages to visit and enjoy specialized programming, listen to stories, experience wonderful events, conduct various types of research including job searches, while also providing a place to gather. Indeed, they are the lifeline to the world through education, creativity, innovation, technology, idea sharing, and community!

The San Ramon libraries are supported in part by Contra Costa County and the City of San Ramon. They pay for a certain number of operating hours, library services, collections, and facility maintenance. The SRLF promotes the two libraries through fundraising and supports the libraries by filling in the funding gaps such as part of the collection budget, educational programming, and some materials. Our primary mode of fundraising is through membership drives, book sales at the Foundation Bookstore, Mega Book Sales, and Jazz concert series.

Your help is essential to us! By making a gift of donation or sponsorship, you help us to help our libraries continue to thrive.
