We are a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization, focused on the literary and cultural needs of our community.
The goal of GPL-Foundation is to provide the opportunity to all for lifelong education and development. We seek to not only help build the library and its programs, but also increase cultural awareness and pride in our community, find common ground for dialogue, and interaction among one another.
The foundation is independent of city and county government, with a 12 member all-volunteer board consisting of citizens of Gladstone, Clackamas, Oak Grove, Oregon City, and Milwaukie.
The GPL-Foundation, with the help of the community via gifts and donation, provides the library and community with support not only for reading and education programs, but also provides opportunities for enrichment. These include the popular summer reading program, and cultural passes.

This year we handed out over 400 children's books at the library Halloween night. We enjoyed watching each child choose a free book and a sweet treat to take home. Thank you for coming to visit us at the library!
The Library Foundation will hold its annual strategic planning meeting in January. Look for upcoming events to benefit our local library and patrons.
