About the event…

Celebrate our Library in the Willamette Balltroom at 6PM with an evening filled with delicious food & beverage, entertainment and activities.

The Library will host button making, green screen photography, virtual reality play, demonstrations of 3D printing and Maker Space projects, and a look inside the Maker Van.

We are excited to announce that The Willamette High School Jazz Combo will be performing.

About our focus this year…

The Eugene Public Library Foundation is initiating a 3-year pilot project to fund Eugene Public Library cards for all public school children in Eugene.

For many children living in unincorporated areas, the cost of accessing the Library’s resources and programming is prohibitive. This unequal access can be as personal as a friend or classmate who is able to use the Library, while a neighboring child cannot.

Libraries open windows, doors, and minds. Our Library offers a safe, nurturing space for children to explore new, vibrant worlds. From music and cultural events to crafting and science activities, the Library inspires a lifelong love of learning. 

Please join us in raising funds to open this critical access to learning for all public school children in Eugene.
