Walk into any neighborhood library and you'll see hope.
At-risk parents are transforming themselves into confident first teachers for their children and struggling students are bucking the trend by becoming strong independent readers. Teens across our community are defining new paths towards high school graduation, and people of all ages are experiencing life-changing breakthroughs and learning experiences.
Gifts to the Library Foundation, large and small, make these transformations possible. Last year, the foundation helped the library reach more than 220,000 people, purchase more than 71,000 books and expand 12 different programs, including initiatives to help at-risk children, parents, seniors and teachers.
This year, your gift can help the library:
- Give all babies and toddlers an equal chance at literacy
- Create breakthroughs for struggling students
- Get books into the hands of young readers
Give today, and help us expand Multnomah County Library's vital work.
The Library Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charity. Your gift is tax-deductible as allowed by U.S. Law.
