LIBRARIES BUILD COMMUNITIES

To build up a library is to create a life. It’s never just a random collection of books.-- Carlos Marie Dominguez

The Memphis Public Libraries are far more than a collection of books. They are services, meeting places, musical performances, mini-museums, sanctuaries and so much more. Our libraries, whether they are physical or virtual, are hubs of equity and access.

Did you know...

  • The Memphis Public Libraries serve over 2.8 million people annually across 18 locations?
  • Over 33,000 people participated in the Explore Memphis Reading Challenge in 2020?
  • LINC 2-1-1, the community info and referral service, made over 28,000 referrals in the 3rd quarter of 2020, an increase of 85% from the same time last year?
  • The Memphis Public Libraries lend over 1.3 million items in a single year?
  • THAT NONE OF THIS HAPPENS WITHOUT THE SUPPORT OF PRIVATE DONORS?

Private support, from individuals and institutional partners fund vital library programs.

Recurring monthly gifts help the MLF plan their budget by providing on-going steady support..
