mission & vision

The West Linn Library Foundation promotes appreciation of and support for the West Linn Public Library by raising funds for the Library's collections, programs, and facilities.  

Holly Grace Jones Fund - Holly Grace Jones loved to read and spent countless hours over the years at the West Linn Library.  She was also a devoted member of the Library's Teen Advisory Board. This fund supports the Library's long term capital investments, like the new circulation desk in the kids/teen area of the library.

Dolly Parton Imagination Library - This international program mails a new book every month to kids between the ages of 0-5 who live in West Linn. It costs approximately $25 per child per year to sustain this program that benefits youth literacy.

Programs & Event Fund - The Library Foundation provides funding to the Library for programs like Music in the Stacks, the Summer Reading Program, and guest speakers and performers
