About the Fund
Delray Beach Public Library Forever Endowment Fund (est. 2017)
The Delray Beach Public Library serves as a key cultural, educational, and resource center for Delray Beach and surrounding communities, and has been a cornerstone of the community for more than 100 years.
The library is a place where people of all ages can explore new horizons through books, magazines, music, DVDs, and digital recordings – free of charge. In addition to extensive book and media collections, there is free access to the Internet in a totally wireless environment, a computer training lab, an information center, meeting room space, quiet study areas, a young adult lounge, a children’s story room and puppet theater, art exhibits, concerts, volunteer opportunities, and extensive programming for adults, young adults, and children.
The library also provides critical academic and literacy support to thousands of children, including many whose families do not speak English at home.
The Delray Beach Public Library has long been a critical bridge for the underserved and underprivileged of Delray Beach between poverty and financial independence and security. With free access to all, the Library has a 104 year tradition as the resource of last resort for those financially challenged to find a better future for themselves and their families. Many recent studies conclude that good reading habits encouraged early, and access to a literacy – rich environment, result in a more productive and vital citizenry.
