The Eugene Public Library is one of the great benefits of living in the city of Eugene. At the heart of downtown, it serves the full spectrum of our population with over 4,000 visitors every day.

Whether it is storytelling to our young, summer reading for young adults, or simply finding information, the Eugene Public Library is where we can learn and share to become better citizens.

Our library must be supported and strengthened for future generations. We encourage all citizens to support the Eugene Public Library by including a gift in their will or trust of one percent (1%) of their estate to the Eugene Public Library Foundation. This gift will be tax deductible and will be used to enhance the Eugene Public Library for generations to come.
