The White Plains Library Foundation was incorporated in 1995 to raise funds to help meet the long-range goals of the White Plains Public Library. From 1997-2001 the Foundation conducted its first fund-raising effort, a Centennial Campaign, that raised $1 million to enhance programs and collections, establish an endowment and seed a capital project to renovate and expand the children’s library. In 2004-2005 the Campaign for the Children’s Library raised an additional $750,000 and The Trove opened to community acclaim. In 2008, the Foundation began raising funds to create a new teen area, called “The Edge,” on the Library’s first floor. Currently, the Foundation’s work supports a wide range of after-school programs, outstanding cultural events, literacy initiatives, convenient online services, programming for teens and career resources. Every program you support through the Library Foundation transforms lives, every day.
