Library, Recreation and Cultural Services

Library Dog Tale

The Library, Recreation and Cultural Services Department (LRCS) takes quality of life seriously. Programs offered by LRCS enrich lives in our community through diverse opportunities to discover, create, and encourage personal and community growth. 

Eugene Public Library
 
The Library provides free access to information, education, and entertainment for community members of all ages, backgrounds, and interests. Come explore at the Library’s three locations – Downtown, Bethel, and Sheldon – or 24/7 at the Eugene Public Library website. From books to streaming films, storytimes to small business support, in-person help to premium online research tools, there’s something for everyone.

Recreation Services

Recreation builds both bodies and brains! Research shows new and different experiences help the brain carve new neural pathways – new ways of thinking – while the physical activity contributes to physical health. Activities are offered for all ages and abilities at six community centers and three pools. Visit the Recreation website for more information or register online.

Cultural Services
Cultural Services supports the City of Eugene’s vision for an accessible and thriving cultural sector. The division manages the Hult Center for the Performing Arts and the Cuthbert Amphitheater, and runs the Community Events and Public Art programs.
