Donations For Libraries
The following foundations were established to accept donations on behalf of the State Library of Louisiana to be used for its programs.
The Louisiana Library Foundation (LLF) was established in 1989 as a nonprofit, tax-exempt organization with the goal of promoting literature, literacy and programming at the State Library of Louisiana. It is a primary sponsor of the Louisiana Book Festival and supports public programming at the State Library throughout the year. After the storms of 2005, the LLF accepted donations on behalf of public libraries that were impacted by the storms.
Donations will be expended on services benefiting all citizens through services of the State Library of Louisiana.
The Mrs. W. Carruth Jones Foundation for the Blind and Physically Handicapped, since 1981, has acted as a friends group for the Talking Books and Braille Library Division of the State Library. It provides a mechanism for accepting donations to enhance and support services to the blind and physically handicapped community statewide. It directly supplements the programs and initiatives of the Talking Books and Braille Library (TBBL) within the State Library of Louisiana. It is a primary sponsor of the State Library's large print collection, TBBL's summer reading program, descriptive video and supports volunteer efforts in this area.
