NPL Ambassadors

At Nashville Public Library Foundation, we believe that every Nashville community deserves access to adequately-funded libraries with facilities, resources, and staff to provide quality educational support, cultural programming, and economic and job development programs. Simply put, NPL is as essential to our quality of life and well-being as waste collection, water, and electricity.  

A public-private partnership is critical to the success of Nashville Public Library. While the Foundation collects private contributions that benefit programming and expand NPL’s impact beyond the walls of its 21 branches, robust government funding is essential for the buildings, collections, and staff that make our library system one of the best in the country. Metro funds cover a significant portion – roughly 90% – of NPL’s needs.  

The NPL Ambassador program provides library patrons an opportunity to come together and voice collective support for one of their treasured community resources. NPL Ambassadors commit to sharing their stories of impact and conveying the importance of our library system to Metro Nashville’s elected officials.

By becoming an NPL Ambassador, you will receive important email updates, invitations to meetings and events, and calls to action when the library needs your voice.  Find out who your council member is here.
