The Eugene Public Library Foundation provides 100% of the Funding for The Imagination Library of Eugene!

We believe in the power of literacy to change and enrich lives.  Currently, only 50% of incoming kindergartners meet the state benchmarks for early literacy. They are behind, even before they start.  We want to change that. Let’s give children the tools they need to be successful and happy.

From birth to the age of five, children in Eugene are eligible to receive a free book in the mail each and every month. No strings attached!Register your reader hereThis program is made possible by the generous contributions of businesses and individuals throughout Eugene. Their investments help strengthen our community for us all. Would you join us?
