Join the Eugene Public Library Foundation and Honorary Chair Mayor Lucy Vinis for "Booked for the Evening" on Saturday, April 4, 6:00 p.m. at Valley River Inn. The celebration will feature delicious food and drink, performances, silent and live auctions, and hands-on "maker" activities, all with the theme "The Library: Our Window Onto the World." This year’s event launches a 3-year pilot project to fund Eugene Public Library cards for all Eugene public school students, regardless of City residency, extending full library services to an additional 800 students in Eugene School District 4J and 400 in the Bethel School District.
