Friends of Eugene Public Library
Thank you, Everyone!
You made our 2017 Annual Book Sale a tremendous success for our entire community. Thanks to over 5,000 customers together with over 450 volunteers, some of whom work year ‘round to organize and sell books/media, we received over $80,000 in purchases/donations with which we can help expand and strengthen EPL’s educational programming projects from early literacy training, Summer Reading Program, and technology skill building to talks and performances which bring authors and others to our Library. We know you went home with some great purchases and we hope to see you next year at the 2018 Annual Book Sale, April 14-15, 2018 (Set-up is April13). More information here.

Mayor Piercy presents 2016 Community Award to FEPL and EPLF
During the 2016 State of the City ceremony on January 6, Mayor Kitty Piercy presented the 2016 Community Award to The Friends of the Eugene Public Library (FEPL) and The Eugene Public Library Foundation (EPLF) in honor of our “outstanding work of the Friends of the Eugene Public Library, particularly your recent support of the five-year Library Levy, which is deserving of our collective thanks and gratitude. The time and effort you and others give to this initiative is a remarkable service that truly enriches the cultural life of the community. For this reason, I hope you will honor us to accept this Community Award which recognizes great service and leadership and celebrates the people who make this such a great place to live.” Thanks to all the volunteers who have given of their time, talents and resources for nearly forty years to #helpushelpEPL.
