Give to the Library Foundation
for an Extraordinary Public Library

The Champaign Public Library Foundation was established to encourage private support for the library — gifts that can make the difference between a good library and a truly extraordinary one. Your support can help create a library that excels at:

  • Nourishing the love of learning and reading
  • Making information and opportunity available to all
  • Bringing the whole community together

Support & Recognition Options


Give online, set up automatic giving, or support the library when you shop. Give a gift in recognition of someone special—or receive special recognition when you make a significant gift.
