The Foundation’s mission is well served by our support of presentations by recognized authors invited to Westerville by the Library. To increase awareness of the Foundation, to foster an appreciation of works by well-known authors and to raise funds for the endowment, the Foundation has hosted a reception for writer/filmmaker Ken Burns and helped to sponsor a visit from Pulitzer Prize-winning author Geraldine Brooks and travel author and public television personality Rick Steves.

The mission of the Westerville Library Foundation is to secure the future of the Westerville Public Library. A library like ours - nationally-ranked, vital and active - functions as a valuable community resource. The Foundation, governed by a volunteer board of community leaders, is an independent, nonprofit organization dedicated to helping enrich the collections and programs of Westerville Library. Through your support we are helping to expand the opportunities the library offers our community. The Foundation raises funds to help ensure that our great library stays that way.
Many of these options may have a tax benefit. An attorney or tax adviser can provide guidance about giving to the Foundation in ways that are best for your situation.
Our partner, The Columbus Foundation, can offer you additional information on giving. As the community’s trusted philanthropic adviser for more than 65 years, The Columbus Foundation offers resources, knowledge and expertise in charitable giving. Call 614.251.4000.
