The Galesburg Public Library Foundation
Enriching Lives, Building Community
The Galesburg Public Library Foundation partners with the Galesburg Public Library to strengthen its services so that all residents have the opportunity to learn, grow, and succeed.
Founded in 2007, the Foundation is a 501(c)3 tax-exempt charitable institution that enables individuals, organizations, and philanthropy to support new and existing library services and expand its resources.
The Foundation will support the Galesburg Public Library Capital Campaign which will fund the construction of a new library, expected to open in late 2023. The new library, located on the corner of West Main and South Academy Streets, will be a destination, center for civic and community activity, and anchor for the downtown’s west end. The library will provide barrier free access for all patrons and offer innovative technology, learning labs, and multi-use spaces for children, families, adults, and businesses.
