For nearly a hundred years, Lakewood residents have enriched their lives with the many educational and cultural benefits of the Lakewood Public Library. Our Library has become more than a collection of lending materials. It’s the center of our city and a crossroads between communities. Thousands of books, millions of songs, movies, magazines, concerts, lectures and forums crowd the Main Library and the Madison Branch.
To ensure that the community retains robust access to these riches—even as the nature of its resources continue to change and grow—the Lakewood Public Library Foundation was formed in 1994. The Foundation's mission is to help the Library acquire the long-term financial stability it needs to maintain and continue to increase its reputation for excellence in community service.

Many people make large donations by placing a bequest in their will. The bequest can be stated as a specific amount or expressed as a percentage of the estate. Your attorney can notify the Foundation or simply send a copy of the bequest to the Foundation through the Library.
