What We Do
What We Do
The Yolo County Library Foundation (YCLF) supports the Library’s mission to “provide access for all to ideas that inform, entertain, and inspire.”
YCLF has established the following funding priorities:
Yolo County Library’s Early Learning Volunteer Brigade
The Yolo County Library Foundation is providing financial support for Yolo County Library to offer an outreach program to local daycare facilities, home child care facilities, preschools and elementary schools. This program is run by trained adult volunteers and provides early learning instruction for children and their parents and caregivers, free reading materials for home libraries, and materials to support the Library’s early learning collections.
Expanding Access to Yolo County Library’s Summer Reading Program
The Yolo County Library Foundation is providing financial support for Yolo County Library to offer online registration for its annual Summer Reading Program. With this tool, readers now have the convenience and flexibility of creating an account and recording their reading habits anytime and anywhere. This tool makes it easy for readers to track the number of books read, number of hours read, or the number of days read for the Summer Reading Program to qualify for incentives and prizes.
Yolo County Library’s English Language Learning programs
Yolo County Library Foundation is supporting the expansion of Yolo County Library’s English conversation clubs, English classes, and the Yolo Reads Adult and Family Literacy Program to all eight branch libraries.
