The nonprofit Broward Public Library Foundation raises private funds to enhance the Broward County Library system, which was deemed Florida's Library of the Year for 2015. The system is currently the largest library system in Florida by square footage and one of the busiest, with more than 7.5 million walk-in customers visiting its 38 locations annually.
Since its inception in 1982, the Library Foundation has provided more than $22 million for endowment and program services at libraries countywide. Through the generosity of its donors, the Broward Public Library Foundation is able to underwrite numerous programs and events, such as the SAT/ACT Workshops for College-Bound Students, the Summer Learning Program, and the annual Books 'n' Bears at the Holidays program for disadvantaged preschoolers.
