Fairhope Public Library Foundation is a 501(c)3


The Fairhope Public Library Foundation was begun in 2008 to develop public and private financial support for the Fairhope Public Library through community fundraisers, grants and an Annual Fund Drive.

In the past, funds were used for special projects such as Maker Lab, which provides state-of-the-art computer software and 3D printers for use by library patrons of all ages.

Currently, the Foundation, in conjunction with the Community Foundation of South Alabama, is focused on growing an endowment fund to ensure the long-term excellence of the award-winning Fairhope Public Library as a vital center of learning and literacy for the Eastern Shore.
