Hood River County Library Foundation

Foundation logoIn 2010, the voters of Hood River County created a Library District to fund the Hood River, Parkdale and Cascade Locks libraries. 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. This is where the Library Foundation comes in. We are a non-profit group formed to enhance and expand library programs and service (find out more about our mission and what we fund).

Your gift helps us provide the margin of excellence that takes our libraries from good to great. Thanks to the generosity of our donors, the Foundation was able to donate over $50,000 in 2016.

Please join us for the 2017 Feast of Words

Saturday March 11th 6-9pm at the Hood River Library

2017 Feast of Words is right around the corner! Please join us Saturday March 11, 2016 (6 – 9 pm) for our annual gala fundraiser. The funds raised will be used to continue the transformation to make the library a flexible, interactive environment for patrons that supports technology.
