The Library District benefits from the generous donations, financial gifts and grants which provide funding for District-wide and branch programs. They also support specific purchases in the branches. Each branch has a wish list of items to choose from. The Grand County Library Foundation is pleased to receive donations and bequests on behalf of the Library District. The goal of the Foundation is to enhance and not replace traditional tax-based support for the libraries. However, the core library operations such as personnel, building maintenance, internet services, library consortium expenses, materials budget and other ongoing expenses are covered by a consistent, dependable revenue source. This stability is provided by property tax revenues.
