MORE THAN BOOKS AND BUILDINGS

What we do

The Library Foundation is a lean, nimble nonprofit that partners with librarians to expand Multnomah County Library's exceptional work. We work to determine where private support will enable librarians to test and expand programs and initiatives, especially those that make a life-changing difference for children at-risk for low literacy.

 

Last year, the library reached more than 145,000 children and adults with programs, books, and literacy initiatives made possible by gifts to The Library Foundation. We focus on three areas: early literacy, school-age success, and learning for life. Our supporters have helped the library reach children and families in every neighborhood and school district across our community.

The Library Foundation is the nonprofit designated by Multnomah County Library to receive bequests and planned gifts, large and small, that benefit the library.
