The Nampa Public Library Foundation was formed in late 2007 in order to help raise money for the Nampa Public Library. Community leaders, realizing the economic and community value of public libraries, sought a way to support the good work being done at the Nampa Public Library. They recognized that additional funding sources beyond traditional municipal revenue options were needed in order to provide enhanced programs and services for a higher level of enrichment. The Foundation has supported various popular and beneficial Nampa Public Library programs, including Super Saturday and author events. The Foundation is currently focused on a substantial capital campaign in support of Nampa’s first Bookmobile.
