The Huntington Public Library proudly announces the formation of the
Huntington Library Foundation, Inc.
Prominent business, civic and community leaders have formed a foundation to raise funds for innovative and creative programs not currently funded by the Huntington Public Library’s general budget.
According to Board Chair, Peter J. Klein, the Huntington Library Foundation is an autonomous, tax-exempt corporation, separate and distinct from the library board.
“The Foundation will not replace taxpayer funding, and monies collected will not become part of the library’s general budget,” said Mr. Klein. “The foundation’s goal will be to help fund creative initiatives that will benefit our community and help our residents be more successful in life. I look forward to working together as a community to help maintain the library’s legacy as the educational, informational and cultural anchor of our community.”
Please watch for further information on special projects being funded by the foundation or ways that you can help the foundation. Tax-deductible contributions to the foundation can be sent to:
Huntington Library Foundation,
338 Main St., Huntington, NY 11743.
