Solano County Library Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to support the programs of the Solano County Library, literacy and lifelong learning needs of the community we serve. SCLF provides funding for special projects that the library cannot fund with public dollars, enabling the library to reach those who need its services the most. It was founded in 1994 and has raised over $2.3 million in support of such programs and projects as the Literacy in Education Access Resource Network (LEARN), the county-wide Reach Out and Read early pediatric literacy program, Adult Literacy programs, Solano Kids Read, Opening Day Collections for new libraries, and art installations at libraries in Vacaville and Rio Vista.
