Our Mission

The mission of the Asotin County Library Foundation is to support a vibrant, modern library system that serves the diverse needs of everyone in our community in perpetuity.

The Foundation, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization created in 2008, leveraged monies donated by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to provide $28,600 worth of new computers at the Downtown and Heights Branches.

Planned Giving

You can develop a plan that best suits your individual interests and needs. Talk with your advisors who can help you match a gift with your requirements. Some of the most common methods of giving and some of their tax advantages are:
