Donate to the Richland Library Foundation

Make a great library better.

Support the Richland Library Foundation.

The Richland Library Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, governed by a Board of Trustees, that works to increase financial support for the library to broaden and diversify its ability to serve the citizens of Richland County with unsurpassed excellence.

Public funding alone is not enough.  Richland Library also relies on private support from generous individuals like you.  Constant innovation and improvement are at the very core of what has made our library one of the nation’s finest. 


Gifts to the Richland Library Foundation are fully tax-deductible. While we welcome gifts in any amount, please consider making one that would place you in the Richland Library Literary Circle, a group of individuals and organizations dedicated to ensuring that future generations enjoy the same high level of library programs and services that exist today at Richland Library. Your support at this level ($500 or more) will be recognized in a number of ways, such as inclusion of your name on the "Richland Library Literary Circle Donor Wall" located at Main, assignment of a “personal librarian” to assist you with all your library needs, and receipt of a special library card recognizing you as a Literary Circle level donor.

Donate now using our convenient, safe online contribution form, or mail your donation to Tina Gills, Development Manager, Richland Library, 1431 Assembly Street, Columbia, SC 29201.
