In 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.
