Since the kick-off of Eugene’s Imagination Library chapter on Sept. 5, 2014, the program has reached thousands of children in the Eugene area. As of September 12, we have 3785 children enrolled, and have served over 8,000 children since the start of the program. Each month, wide-eyed youngsters open their mailboxes to find the gift of one free book. We are grateful to all of you who support this effort to help Eugene’s fledgling readers. For those of you who are new to the website, read on to learn more about this exciting program! [more]

Name a Shelf
For $100, you can create a tribute for someone that will last forever as a named shelf in any branch of the Eugene Public Library. Is there a special birthday coming up? You may want to surprise your parent on Mother or Father’s Day. Perhaps, you would rather honor a very special graduate. Have you lost someone who made a real difference in your life? We will recognize your gift of $100 with a named shelf. You will be providing much-needed enhancements for the Eugene Public Library. And, you will be honoring the extraordinary people in your life…forever. [more]
Name Part of the Eugene Public Library
There are still many naming opportunities at the Eugene Public Library. For a variety of gift amounts, we will recognize your contribution with a plaque, honoring your gift. Naming a part of our Public Library helps elevate the quality of life in our community, providing access to enriching materials and online resources for every Eugene Public Library cardholder. It also creates a tribute that will honor your friends or family for many years. Contact the Foundation office at 541-338-7018 to learn more.
Give a Planned Gift
Many of our most meaningful contributions to the library were made possible by bequests, or legacy gifts. Program such as The Imagination Library and the Maker Hub were made possible by this type of gift. When you leave a gift in your estate plan to the Library Foundation, it will help support the public library for many years and will give you the knowledge that you will help those in the future.
