Welcome to the Eugene Public Library Foundation!

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.

Library After Hours  –  A great success!

Library After Hours was a one-time benefit event that took the place of Booked for the Evening in 2019. For $100 per person, guests enjoyed hearty hors d’oeuvres, passed wine, a champagne bar and dessert. They had private access to library services such as green screen photography, virtual reality, robotics, circuitry and more. Thank you to author Cai Emmons who shared some of her creative process and information on Publishing. Her endorsement of libraries was timely and enduring. Mr. George Buss, our nation’s leading Abraham Lincoln, came from Illinois to bring our beloved 16th president to life. His reading of the Gettysburg was a moving reminder of a remarkable time in our nations history. Thank you all for your support of literacy building in Eugene through programs at Eugene Public Library.
