The year 2022 marks the San José Public Library Foundation’s 35th anniversary. And over the past 35 years The Foundation has raised more than $35 million to support our libraries and its programs that benefit our community members by preparing children for kindergarten to serving aging adults, truly encompassing what it means to provide lifelong access and support.

Thank you to all who supported and attended our 35th Anniversary Gala held at the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Library. We hope you enjoyed the whimsical Alice in Wonderland-themed evening with musical entertainment, curated experience stations, cocktails, food, live auction, and raffle.
