The Tompkins County Public Library Foundation works to sustain and strengthen our library by inspiring community support as well as encourage engagement through philanthropy and participation. Members of our community, from individuals like you, families and foundations, to businesses, trusts and organizations, play a pivotal role in supporting TCPL through contributions to the Foundation.
Our library has always relied upon a partnership of private and public funds, from its earliest days as the Cornell Free Library founded nearly 150 years ago by Ezra Cornell. Today, we continue the legacy of his philanthropy by encouraging community support.
