We are grateful to the Cressey Family Charitable Trust for their partnership in supporting learning and literacy building for youth of all ages. Thank you for your grant of $10,000 in 2019, and for your support of Eugene Public Library’s Homework Center and all online resources dedicated to students’ academic success as well as outreach to eligible Imagination Library preschoolers.
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.
