The CPL Foundation Grants & Partnerships Committee invites inquiries from, and explores partnerships with, community organizations interested in promoting reading, literacy and access to the Concord Public Library.


A key objective of these partnerships is to engage more residents with the resources available at the Concord Public Library and promote the role that a strong public library plays in our community.


Small grants from the Concord Public Library Foundation may be available to support such partnerships, as long as the proposed partnership event or initiative is consistent with the mission of the Concord Public Library Foundation, and grant funds are available.
