Philanthropy provides critical support to the Prince George’s County Memorial Library System. It strengthens the Library’s capacity to innovate, adapt to change, and ensure our libraries remain a vital resource for all in Prince George’s County now and in the future.
Our libraries are more than a place to find books; they are spaces – both physical and online – to empower individuals, strengthen families, and make the County a better place.
Please consider making a donation today. With gifts from generous people like you, we can continue to expand our services, offer free public programs, and fund new ideas – ensuring the long-term vitality of our libraries and making us Prince George’s Proud!

The Butterfly Project is a dedicated workforce development project at the Fairmount Heights Branch Library specifically for young Black and Brown trans women, who are among the most at-risk people in the community. Inspired by the life and work of Karen Holmes, head of the Prince George’s Trans Coalition, the program seeks to ready young women for the job market and connect them with vital, affirming services. No matter your living, earning, or job skills situation, The Butterfly Project fosters a respectful, non-judgmental space to help young women blossom at their own pace in a safe environment.
