"NOTICE: Foundation Services Will be Interrupted—We apologize for the inconvenience, but the day-today business of our foundation will be hindered by the damage our building suffered from a falling tree in recent thunderstorms. We will continue operating as best we can, but operations will be slower than normal. Thank you for understanding."

The Tocker Foundation



Public libraries play a vital role as guardians of equal access, intellectual freedom, and objective stewardship of information. This role becomes critical in our state’s rural areas where libraries are an intrinsic part of all community activities and gatherings.



Libraries of the 21st Century adapt, evolve and innovate to keep up with the rapid pace of change. Creativity, entrepreneurial spirit, current technology, customer-oriented focus, and community engagement are vital parts of the equation to help the library connect with its community.



Supporting libraries and organizations across the state with thoughtful grant-making and effective partnerships that align with our mission.
