Bartlett Public Library District Foundation



Our Purpose

Bartlett Public Library District Foundation LogoFounded in 2000, the Bartlett Public Library District Foundation was established to provide additional sources of revenue to enhance services and capital improvements that are not paid through property taxes. The fund is divided into two parts:


Main Fund:

This supports specific projects for the Library, such as the front Lobby doors and other various projects. Fundraising efforts are directed towards funding capital improvements.

Patti Perkins Fund:

Established in the memory of the Library’s former Circulation Department Manager. Donations to this fund add to the collection of materials related to general health issues with an emphasis on women’ health. Since its inception, over $15,000 worth of books, audio visual materials, and programming have been supplied to the Library from donations to the Patti Perkins Fund.




The Foundation Executive Board makes spending decisions and project selections.



Tax Deductions
