The Stillwater Public Library

“A library outranks any other one thing a community can do to benefit its people. It is a never failing spring in the desert.”
~ Andrew Carnegie

In 1902 Andrew Carnegie gave a gift of $27,500 to fund the construction of the beautiful Stillwater Public Library. Today, the library is a vital resource, providing books, programs, community space, wi-fi and technology resources, volunteer opportunities, and more!

The Stillwater Public Library Foundation

The Foundation serves to enhance the programs, services, materials and historic preservation of the Stillwater Public Library. Our Vision: The Stillwater Public Library is celebrated as a world-class library! Our Mission: To engage the community and its resources to expand the reach and impact of the Stillwater Public Library.

The Heart of the Stillwater Community

The library continues to grow and serves as a vital community resource. It is inclusive, accessible, and welcomes everyone. The Stillwater Public Library is an essential education partner, promoting early literacy, and student academic success. Library programs build community for patrons of all ages. Additionally, the library supports job seekers by providing technology and career resources.


Your Support Makes A Difference

Donated funds make the difference between good libraries and great libraries. The many books, materials, collections, programs, subscriptions, Sunday hours, mobile W-Fi hotspots,  and library building improvements would not be possible without your continued support. Here’s how your gift makes a difference:

  • $25 buys one hardcover book;
  • $85 buys one e-book;
  • $100 provides TEN children’s picture books;
  • $250 enables the library to offer one book in SIX different formats; and
  • $2,500 fills an ENTIRE BOOKSHELF with new books!
  • $5,000 can fund historic renovation, Sunday hours and programs.


Thank You!

On behalf of all who enjoy the magic of the library -- we extend our sincerest thanks as you consider giving to the Stillwater Public Library Foundation this season.

A comfortable chair, a good book, and warmest wishes,

The Stillwater Public Library Foundation
