About Us

Our Mission

The Deschutes Public Library Foundation was founded by forward-thinking community members in 1993 to provide dependable, sustainable funding that supports and enhances library programs and outreach services that are not funded through taxes.

The Foundation raises and manages funds to ensure world-class library programs that reach and serve all people in Deschutes County.

Community support provides the margin of excellence that makes our libraries outstanding.
