We are a 100% volunteer-run , independent library, founded in the River Road neighborhood to bring affordable library services to residents who live outside the city limits.
Volunteering at our library is great for people who enjoy a low key environment, enjoy reading, and like to help people. We were closed through the much of the pandemic and are ready to fully open, but we need more volunteers to enable us to achieve this goal.
The library was established in 2003 as a way to provide affordable library services to residents in the 97404 area of Eugene, most of whom are non-city residents. These folks do not pay into the city tax fund and thus are not eligible for a free city library card. Our library has been open since 2005. We ask for a donation of $20 for a one year membership to the library, but no one is turned away for lack of ability/interest to pay. Our operating expenses are entirely through fundraising and donations. The library is staffed entirely by volunteers. Our collection is created mainly through donations and small grants. We have an active children's program throughout the year and a summer reading program for kids also.
