Welcome to the

Tompkins County Public Library Foundation!

We sustain and strengthen our library by inspiring community support.

The Foundation serves as a bridge between the library and the community, encouraging engagement through philanthropy and participation.

Here's what's happening

Library Literati

Virtual Trivia Night

Friday, February 26th at 7:00PM

Our first-ever Library Literati Virtual Trivia Night Event in October was a blast! So, by popular demand, we're hosting another opportunity for you to show off your arcane, obscure, and esoteric knowledge of all things great and small.

The event will be hosted once again by Trivia Master Bob Proehl, with the assistance of experienced online Trivia mavens Table for One. All are welcome to join!

Tickets are just $25, whether you want to compete as an individual or as a group, and your purchase helps support Tompkins County Public Library's collections, programming, and services. You can have fun and support literacy, community values, lifelong learning, and much, much more--just by buying a ticket. And you can do that by clicking here.

See you there!

Start the New Year by Creating the World You Want to See

The Library, like everyone, has faced enormous challenges in the last year. But TCPL continues to meet the community's needs in new and inspiring ways. 2020 taught us that we are all in it together. Community matters, whatever shape it takes. TCPL will continue to be a trusted resource in our community, but we can't do it without you.

We need your help. Together we can create a better 2021.

Give securely online  here.

Or send a check to: TCPL Foundation, PO Box 6727, Ithaca, NY 14851.

Thank you!
