Most libraries exist because of funding from public sources, but it is private funds that make the difference between “good” and “great” library systems. As a non-profit organization, the Friends and Foundation of the Arlington Public Library provides a source of financial assistance to the Arlington Public Library through the solicitation of tax-deductible contributions from private sources. Our goal is to provide an outstanding library for the people of Arlington.

Dream Central
The Downtown Library, located at 100 S. Center St. just north of City Hall, will provide access, knowledge, and resources through cutting-edge technology, extensive print and digital collections and dynamic and enriching programming for the entire community. The Friends and Foundation of the Arlington Public Library have raised 92% of the 8 million dollars for the new George W. Hawkes Library. There is still time to give towards this wonderful project.
