Mission Statement

The Friends of the Cleveland Public Library is a nonprofit organization that engages and inspires individuals, businesses, and philanthropic organizations to advocate, fundraise, and provide critical support for the Cleveland Public Library and its programs. We believe that libraries strengthen communities by providing free and equal access to information and technology and that they are vitally important to maintaining thriving neighborhoods. Therefore, we provide the community with opportunities to participate in the success of the Library through membership, volunteer opportunities, community partnerships, the recycling and sale of books, special events, and literary programs.
