St. Mary’s County Library Foundation

The St. Mary’s County Library Foundation, Inc. (the Foundation), was launched in 2016 to develop a year-round program of public support to provide supplemental funding for the Library, including support for capital improvement projects such as the new Leonardtown Library.

The Foundation looks forward to leading our community’s efforts to come together to build a new Library facility to ensure that St. Mary’s County remains a great place to live, raise families and age comfortably.
