Mission Statement: The purpose of the Lodi Public Library Foundation is to raise funds for major projects that address the constantly growing needs for library services and “fill the gap” in the limited funds available from city resources. With private support, the LPL Foundation can maintain cutting-edge technology and enhance literary and humanities programming for children, teens, and adults. The Foundation also works to promote a greater awareness of the library’s valuable services. The LPL Foundation secures private support that provides the margin of excellence that creates a great library.
