The Arlington Libraries Foundation is dedicated to helping open the doors to all who are curious, creating an inclusive space for the Arlington community, and ensuring the libraries’ future as the cornerstone of the community for generations to come.

Supporting the Robbins and Fox Branch Libraries, we work to create a place where readers and resources connect. The libraries are more than physical spaces to find books, they are windows into adventure, innovation, creativity, community and opportunity. We strive to make that possible.

The Arlington Libraries Foundation raises funds to bridge the gap between assets and aspirations in order to maintain a world-class library. We help support current programs and launch new initiatives. We are investing in the libraries we love.


Who We Are

Who Made You a Reader?

Holding a book is a link to the past and a portal to the future. Do you remember who shared the gift reading with you? Was it a parent, teacher or a librarian? Honor those who introduced you to the library by sharing your story.
