Library Renewal Funding

Library Renewal Funding

This project is funded by a City-Community Partnership. Through generous funding from the City, foundations, and members of the community, approximately $3 million has been collected to preserve and enhance our beloved library!

Fundraising Campaign

In 2017, the library’s three support organizations—the Library Board, the Friends of the Pacific Grove Library and the Library Foundation—along with the Library Director and community volunteers joined together to oversee a capital campaign to raise funds to bring the Library Renewal Project, designed by Karin Payson architecture + design, to life!  The campaign received approval from the City Council to direct $400,000 over two years from the city’s general fund, as well as major pledges from both the Friends of the Library and the Library Foundation.

To date, the fundraising campaign has raised over $2.6 million dollars! The fundraising efforts, paired with the City’s contributions, amass to over $3 million of total project funding.
