library imagesThe Urbana Free Library Foundation is an independent nonprofit established to support The Urbana Free Library.

The Foundation encourages community support of the Library — the Foundation's financial support directly benefits The Urbana Free Library and, by extension, the Urbana community.

Recently, the Foundation has enabled the purchase of high-end production computers in The Library, provided for additional community outreach initiatives, and funded two murals on the Cunningham Township building.
