Membership

Solano County Library Foundation funds vital programs that help those who otherwise would struggle with literacy, those who would have trouble entering the workforce. The Foundation supports programs of the Solano County Library that otherwise could not exist since there are no funding mechanisms in public budgets - local, state or federal. They exist on the generosity of those who give to the Foundation.
