The Douglas County Public Library Foundation enhances library services, programs and projects.

Your donation helps make the Douglas County Public Libraries a richer place, one in which everyone can explore new ideas, improve their lives, and enjoy a unique sense of community.

Libraries enrich the lives of everyone in our community, regardless of age or economic circumstance. Children come to pick out a book and enter a new world. Teens rediscover the library as a cool place to meet friends and do homework. Adults learn to use a computer and improve skills that help them find better jobs.

Our current project is: The upgrade of the library's public computers including the internet terminals and the public online catalog.

Recently completed projects:

  • Technology toolkit will provide library staff with resources for teaching the public about the library's digital services. It will include various mobile devices.
  • The renovation of the Teen Center included new lighting, shelves, carpeting, seating, and a whiteboard to encourage teen interaction.
  • The renovation of the Children's Resource Center incorporated architectural changes to the children's section of the Minden Library. It included a new storytime area, shelving, furnishings, and an improved floorplan.
  • The remodeling of the front desk in the Minden Library provided improved work-flow for better customer service.
  • Technology upgrades improved public access to online services. The upgrades included replacement of the library's Internet server, upgrades to network equipment, and installation of a new library circulation system.
