About the Cobb Library Foundation:

The Cobb Library Foundation was founded in 2003 to create the margin of excellence for our library—building private support, enhancing visibility for our library’s impact, and strengthening the public’s commitment to a great library. The Foundation and the Library work together, in strong partnership, to determine where private funds can be leveraged to have the greatest impact and at the same time, not supplant the public’s responsibility for funding a strong library system. The Foundation is a 501(c)3 organization.
