Vision / Goals

Libraries that are financially supported to provide excellent services and facilities for generations to come.
The Foundation as a liaison between the community and library board to help identify needs and generate support
– PROGRAM OVERVIEW –
The Hood River County Library Foundation is working to support our Library District by raising funds to supplement the tax funding from the special district levy that was passed in 2010. While tax dollars keep the lights on, buildings open, and books on shelves, our tax rate is among the lowest in the state, providing just a basic level of funding. The Foundation is striving to make our library branches in Hood River, Parkdale, and Cascade Locks better than that. We want a vibrant, dynamic library with current materials, up-to-date technology, and branches that are open enough hours to be convenient for patrons throughout the county.
