Our Mission

We are community leaders and advocates who collaborate with the Pierce County Library System.

We develop trusting, enduring relationships with community members, businesses, and organizations; raising private funds and investing them in Library’s strategic priorities to nurture and boost the human potential required to thrive in today’s knowledge economy.

We foster innovation to ensure access for all and inspire lifelong learning, for a thriving, diverse Pierce County, now and in the future.

Our Vision

Ignite literacy of all kinds for every child, teen, and adult in Pierce County to build a knowledgeable, aware, engaged and empowered community, critical to fueling our social and economic prosperity
