The Foundation’s mission is to serve as an advocate for the Summit County Library System and to provide financial support beyond the Library’s normal operating expenditures, when unanticipated needs arise, and for capital projects.

The Library Foundation is an independent, non-profit organization dedicated to supporting and enhancing the libraries' rich diversity of resources and programming for generations to come. The Foundation is served by an all volunteer Board of Directors drawn from interested residents of Summit County who are dedicated to providing quality library services to our community and visitors for the present and the future.
The Executive Board consists of Elizabeth Edgar, Chairman Pro-tem, Donna Mahon, Vice-Chairman, Joyce Dierauer, Treasurer, and Barbara Parry, Secretary.
The remaining members of the Board are Leah Arnold, Dana Christiansen, Mary Lynne Kneller, Paul Olson, Michael Good, Kristina Nethaway, Pat Taylor, and Stephanie Ralph (Director of Summit County Libraries).
A major project of the Foundation was the successful capital campaign for the new South Branch Library. Financial support has also been given to the digital collection, children’s and teen programming such as “Girls who Code”. The Foundation is striving to enhance programming, fulfill equipment needs at the three locations, and look to the future needs of our buildings.
The Foundation is looking for dedicated volunteer board members to help guide the foundation in our next development phase. Individuals with a passion for the library are welcome to apply. Please contact Summit County Library Foundation [email protected] if you are interested.
