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

Recreating is good for our bodies and our brains, growing new neuron connectors, sharpening our minds and keeping us young. With our three pools and seven community centers, it’s Eugene Rec’s mission to provide recreation opportunities to all Eugene residents for sharp minds and strong bodies. 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.
