Support TCPL

Tompkins County Public Library Foundation

The Tompkins County Public Library Foundation serves as the fundraising arm for the public library. Members of the community -- individuals and families, foundations, businesses, trusts and organizations -- play a pivotal role in supporting TCPL through contributions to the Foundation.

Our library has always relied upon a partnership of private and public funds, from its earliest days as the Cornell Free Library founded nearly 150 years ago by Ezra Cornell. Today, we continue the legacy of his philanthropy by encouraging community support.
