According to its mission the Douglas County Public Library Foundation,

“Facilitates the library’s success by fostering contributions for extraordinary projects to be accomplished by the library.”

Past projects include a renovation of the meeting room in the Minden library in memory of Elizabeth Johnson, an electronic kiosk to provide library services in south Douglas County from 2001-2007, and partial funding for a total renovation of the children’s area in the Minden library. Future projects include the establishment of an endowment fund for support of materials, services, programs, and capital renovations and expansion.
