What We Do

The Williamson County Library Foundation’s mission is to support the library’s programs and services though advocacy, fund raising, and building relationships within the community. As a nonprofit 501(c) (3) organization our goal is to enrich, not replace, tax-based support for the library through grants and gifts from individuals and organizations.
