 The Port Washington Library Foundation fulfills the Library trustees’ requests for funding for a variety of needs and opportunities not covered by the taxpayer-approved budget. Having funded additional programming, advanced technology, new initiatives, and upgrades of the library building and grounds over the years, the Foundation has undertaken its most ambitious project to date – the complete renovation and expansion of the newly named Jackie and Hal Spielman Children’s Library. Established in 1989, the Foundation has donated 1.6 million dollars in private funds to the Library.
