Carlsbad Library and Arts Foundation is about supporting our community

Literature and the arts flourished during the Renaissance due in large part to the tireless support of an enlightened patronage. Today, the Carlsbad City Library continues to grow with the same enthusiastic involvement of those who wish to create and preserve a lasting legacy of learning for future generations.

The Carlsbad City Libraries, the Dove and the Cole, both recently remodeled and the Learning Center are a community treasure. From the extensive collection of nearly 250,000 volumes to a wide range of online data services, from an imaginative gallery of art to a state-of-the-art auditorium, the Library has amassed a wealth of cultural resources from a long tradition of civic pride and responsibility.

Continuing in this tradition, the Carlsbad Library Foundation was created to stimulate the enlightened patronage of our time in providing for the future growth and development of the Library as it anticipates and responds to the ever-changing needs of our growing and diverse community.

Thank you so much for your support!
