Welcome to the Brentwood Library Foundation!

The Brentwood Library moved to its new location, 104 Oak Street on September 29, 2018.
 
The Mission of the Brentwood Library Foundation is to support the construction of the new library, through advocacy, fundraising, and by building relationships with others who share a passion for the Library’s work. In October 2015, the Brentwood City Council voted to fund the construction of a new library at 104 Oak Street where the library was at the time. The City financed the 20,000 square foot building for $12.2 million. As a nonprofit public benefit corporation, we have been dedicated to raising funds to augment the interior furnishings, technology and collections. We believe that having access to a state-of-the-art library which will bring untold benefits to Brentwood and the surrounding communities is an investment in the future of the community. 

The original mission of the Brentwood Library Foundation was to support the construction of a new library, through advocacy, fundraising, and by building relationships with others who share a passion for the Library’s work. Our goal was to raise $625,000 and we exceeded our goal by raising $700,000 from donations from individuals, companies and foundations and events. We are grateful to our 352 donors and everyone who came to our events. The Brentwood Library continues to have needs for materials and equipment, so our mission now is to raise funds to provide for those needs. The Friends of the Brentwood Library has always raised funds through book sales and donations to fund library programs and materials.

We are proud that we have been able to provide the library with the following items. If you would like to support our mission, please see “How You Can Help.” You will be remembered on a plaque upstairs.
