The Foundation supports the Library's desire to meet users where they are and our financial contributions allow the Library to seize opportunities to do so.
This year, with the Foundation's support, the Library was able to partner with Autumn Park Apartments to provide a summer reading program targeted directly to the low income residents who live in these apartments. We have also purchased a small circulating collection for the kids. We hope this is the beginning of a long relationship with the good folks at Autumn Park to work together to positively impact the lives of their residents.
The Wilsonville Public Library Foundation is co-sponsoring Wilsonville History nights at the McMenamins Old Church, collaborating with the Wilsonville Boones Ferry Historical Society and McMenamins. Wilsonville History Nights have featured talks on slavery in Oregon, the legacy of Tom McCall, the photographs of Ralph Eddy and Abraham Lincoln and the Oregon Country.
