The North Bend Public Library Foundation was established in 2004 as an independent non-profit Oregon corporation. It is made up of dedicated members of the community who believe that the excellence of a community is mirrored in the quality of its library.
The North Bend Public Library Foundation realizes that tax dollars alone will not enable the library to reach its full potential. The Foundation is dedicated to securing supplemental financial support for the North Bend Public Library through donations, grants, gifts, and memorial contributions.
The mission of the North Bend Public Library is to promote the enjoyment of reading and cultural materials, and to respond to the community’s need for information; to provide reading materials to meet the interests of all ages and to provide materials that support lifelong learning, encourage literacy, and enrich the quality of life of the people of our community.
The North Bend Public Library also places a high priority on stewardship of the library building: improving the library facilities for the benefit of future generations.
A library is not a luxury, but one of the necessities of life.
– Henry Ward Beecher
