The ALA Cultural Communities Fund (CCF) is an endowment to support cultural programming in libraries. Funding from CCF supports:

  • professional development opportunities for libraries that address practical issues related to cultural and community programs
  • awards and grants that recognize excellence in library programming
  • development and promotion of effective library programming models
      Libraries connect communities to the greatest treasures that the world has to offer. Through programs and events that bring the community together, librarians powerfully connect citizens to words and ideas, art and music, history and film, and connect one person to another through cultural programming and dialogue.

      Please read more about the power of cultural programming libraries to transform communities, and join the list of nearly 500 librarians, culturally focused foundations and corporations that have contributed to CCF by making your own donation.
