Supporting literacy for the betterment of our community. One book can change the life of one child. That one child can change the path of their family. That one family can impact an entire community. The Boerne Public Library Foundation is committed to supporting the literacy needs in our community. Whether it be one library program or one book that makes it into someone’s home, our goal is to meet the demand for literacy initiatives in Kendall County.
Whether it is a community program, a library program or service or an initiative with a community partner, literacy is at the core of what we do. Together, our community is working to meet the growing need for literacy support. Through Boerne Reads we are changing lives, one book at a time.

The Patrick Heath Public Library is our community hub, offering programs and services that change lives. With the help of the Foundation, the library is able to keep programs free to all library visitors. To learn more about how your support impacts programming, click HERE.
A love of learning keeps us curious, engaged and responsive to change. Learning new languages, forms of literacy or ways to help within our community will allow Boerne to continue to keep up with our changing community. A love of learning keeps one engaged in their environment. Click HERE to learn more.
September's National Literacy Month
Each September we celebrate National Literacy Month with the help of our community partners to collect new and gently used books. This year we had more partners than ever before! In addition to the book drive, the BPLF and BISD hosted a Short Essay Contest. Encouraging better literacy and getting books in the hands of children are creating a better future for Kendall County.
