We support the Eugene Public Library in its efforts to inspire lifelong learning and to enrich the entire community. We secure and responsibly manage contributions from individuals, businesses, and foundations to build community support for our Eugene Public Library.

Libraries enrich lives and strengthen communities. Through private and public support, the Eugene Public Library Foundation envisions a vibrant public library that maximizes access to information, increases literacy and innovation, serves as a gateway to arts and culture, and provides a community gathering place.

Eugene, Oregon is home to a much loved, award-winning library.  We are honored to help strengthen programs for our community at our Eugene Public Library.  We welcome your participation in learning more about programs and materials at the Eugene Public Library, and joining us in strengthening and expanding library services to our community.

Thank you so much for your generous and continued commitment to information access, children’s literacy, and a more enlightened community.
