Lincoln Library Foundation


The Lincoln Library Foundation was established in 1991 for purposes "charitable, literary, and educational". It is the purpose of the Foundation to focus attention on public library services in Springfield and encourage development of Lincoln Library's collections through individual gifts, endowment and bequests. The Foundation accepts contributions for books in memory of someone or in honor of individuals and events.

The Foundation also oversees memorial and gift funds that have been established over the years. Currently there are 36 such funds. If you have questions about the Lincoln Library Foundation, phone 217-753-4900 extension 202.

From Charlotte's Web to the World Wide Web

The Web has changed our world, but no one knows what technological advances are still to come. Our children need to be ready to meet the challenges of tomorrow; and at Lincoln Library we need to be ready to help them. You can help us by contributing to the Children’s Technology Fund. Contributions to the fund will be spent on software, learning devices and furniture for children of all ages and to create a permanent endowment with the Lincoln Library Foundation to fund future purchases. All donations are tax-deductible.
