Welcome to the Eugene Public Library Foundation!

The Eugene Public Library Foundation supports the Eugene Public Library in its efforts to inspire lifelong learning and to enrich the entire community. 

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 work to help strengthen programs for our community at our 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.

Supporting the Library Levy Renewal

On Monday, July 27, 2020 at 5:30pm, Will O’Hearn, Library Services Director, will bring draft resolutions for the levy renewal for the November 2020 ballot to the Eugene City Council at their work session. During this meeting, the City Council will determine whether or not the levy renewal will go forward for the November ballot, and specifically,  the rate at which the levy will be renewed. It is critical to show community support for the Library levy’s option to maintain the existing rate of .17  leading up to this meeting.
