City of Eugene - Library Services Director

Excellence in action is observed every day in Eugene's Public Library Division (EPL). This team is amazing and dedicated to building a better and stronger community. Library staff are highly regarded by the public for their knowledge, quality of service and caring, and because of that, EPL benefits from strong community support. Staff passion is evident and the programs that they provide transform lives and connect our community.

The community is served at three locations – Downtown, Bethel and Sheldon. Serving over 3000 visitors each day, the Downtown Library has been an anchor in downtown Eugene since it's opening in 2002. The Bethel and Sheldon Branch Libraries are vital to accessible service delivery for community members in underserved parts of the city. EPL is known for its progressive, responsive service to patrons of all demographics and works hard to incorporate new and emerging technologies into programs and services. The library offers a diverse collection of materials in a variety of formats and consistently offers fresh educational and recreational programming. This is accomplished with a budget of $14 million and 105 FTE.
