About the Foundation

The Wauwatosa Public Library is the heart of our community, and it’s the Wauwatosa Public Library Foundation’s mission to keep the Library strong and flourishing. Your gift to the Foundation supports programs that nurture a lifelong passion for reading and provide essential services to community members of all ages. Together, we can create and maintain this special place where neighbors can read, learn, work, create, congregate and share ideas.

Gifts of all amounts help expand minds and enrich lives. If you would like to make a donation, please click the button below.


Leadership Event

Each year we hold a Leadership event to present the Arthur B. Kohasky Leadership Award to a citizen who has made a positive impact in our community, and Leadership Awards to area high school students. Our annual event features a nationally known author as our keynote speaker.

Annual Campaign

Our sole purpose is to raise funds to enhance the Wauwatosa Library’s programs and services beyond what tax dollars provide. The annual campaign is our primary way of raising those funds. Thanks to the gifts provided by supporters like you, the Foundation has been able to purchase computers, high-tech furnishings, an electronic check-out system, and construct the Story Room and Student Commons.
