We find good homes for gently used books, CDs, DVDs, and LPs.
And if we can’t resell a book, it is recycled. 

We recycle over 38 TONS of books each year

Your donations support kids, family, and early literacy programs

Good for Jeffco. Good for the Earth.
Good for You!

JCLF’s mission is to support and enrich the capabilities, resources and services of the Jefferson County Public Library through fundraising and advocacy efforts that benefit our diverse community. 

If you gave last year, here is some of what YOU helped us accomplish.  And if you didn’t, here are FIVE great reasons to give!

  1. Early Childhood Literacy Programs that help children be reading-ready by Kindergarten. Baby’s First Books and 1000 Books Before Kindergarten help pre-school children and their families get the support they need to help them succeed!
  2. Jefferson County Library Summer Reading Program. This year, over 42,675 Jeffco residents read over 42 MILLION Minutes in the 2019 Mission to Read summer program.  Mission Accomplished!
  3. STEMGirls – middle-school girls gain leadership skills as they run STEM-based exploration groups for elementary school students.
  4. Belmar Library Expansion – we’ve helped fund the Edgewater Family Place and Standley Lake Library Discover Together: Outdoor Adventure Space installations, and this year we’re helping to support Belmar Library’s remodel and expansion.
  5. The semi-annual Whale of a Used Book Sale – these events draws thousands of book lovers for a weekend of fun and book-shopping that raises funds.

Need more reasons? None of this would have been possible without our 300+ community volunteers and without YOUR support. Thank you!

PLEASE THANK THE FOUNDATION’S SPONSORS
