Funds are raised through local, state and federal grants, as well as by individual and corporate donations, to assist with programming and other needs which fall outside those covered by the regular PLS operating budget. The PLS Foundation supports programs that are system-wide such as summer reading.

Please join us for a private reception with our guest of honor, world-renowned novelist, Michael Chabon. Chabon is the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay and is the keynote speaker for the Pioneer Library System’s The Big Read 2015.
