The Paso Robles City Library is a jewel in our community, providing access to excellent traditional library resources, such as books and reference materials, along with technology, arts, and music for all ages. As a City Library, core funding is provided by the City of Paso Robles. However, the Library can only grow its collection and continue to offer enrichment programming with donations from the community to Library support organizations such as The Paso Robles Library Foundation.

Futures begin at the Paso Robles Library.  Please support it by giving to the Foundation today.

Your donations, large and small, to the Library Foundation have made it possible to revitalize furnishings, create and expand collections in all areas of the library: reference tools, music CD's, online databases, books on CD, DVDs, as well as offer program and equipment support for the Study Center.

Your volunteer involvement as a Board member and/or event committee member helps too!
