Mission Statement

San José Public Library enriches lives by fostering lifelong learning and by ensuring that every member of the community has access to a vast array of ideas and information.

Many companies recognize their employees’ community involvement by contributing to the organizations where they volunteer. For example, a company may donate $10 for every hour that an employee volunteers. Your service at San José Public Library would qualify for this type of program. Check this list to see if your employer participates in such a program, and if so, please ask your company how to submit a matching form to benefit the San José Public Library Foundation.
