Thanks, Everyone -- once again you #helpushelpEPL
Friends President Connie Regali presents a BIG check for $100,000 to LaVena Nohrenberg, Customer Experience Manager, to help support programs at the Eugene Public Library! These funds were raised by the dedicated work of FEPL volunteers, plus the generosity of community members who donate money, books, and other items and shop at the Friends' many sales outlets: book sales, our bookstore, our Amazon storefront (EugeneLibraryFriends), our eBay store (eugenelibraryfriends). Thanks to everyone who helps the Friends help our Library!

2017 Honored Friend
We are very proud to announce our 2017 Honored Friend, Jan Guthrie. Jan is a retired EPL staffer - among other positions, she was the longtime Bookmobile driver. An always enthusiastic, cheerful FEPL volunteer, she has been involved with most of our activities from processing incoming material donations to three very long days at the Annual Booksale; she can also be found at our pop up minisales throughout the year. Her volunteer hours must number in the thousands. Jan is always a mainstay of our important activities. A very worthy Honored Friend, congratulations, Jan.
