Solon Public Library Foundation

Your gift to the library though the Solon Public Library Foundation means the difference between a good library and a great library. With private support, we can expand our collections to include more of what patrons want in materials and technology, and provide more to serve the needs of children, teens, adults, and people with special needs.

Solon Public Library Foundation


The Solon Public Library Foundation, a non-profit organization, was established in 2004 to provide support for library programs and long-range building plans. The Foundation's first project was to provide a Web-based catalog system. This online access allows patrons to browse the library catalog, reserve books, and extend check out periods. Upgrading the digital capabilities of the library was also a part of this project.

Since the opening of the new library building in 2001, the growth in use of the facility has exceeded all expectations. To support this growth and maintain a viable community library, the Foundation is organized to solicit donations, accept gifts, and manage these funds carefully to support long-term growth in library service.

Your donation to the Foundation is an investment in your community as well as a contribution to the long-term growth of the library. To make a donation, please fill out the form on the Foundation brochure and return it to the library with your gift. You can pick up a copy at the library or use the link below and print a copy of it.
