Friends of the Talent Library Update

The Oregon nonprofit corporation known as Friends of the Talent Library ("FOTL") has voluntarily dissolved.

Although FOTL can no longer accept donations for the Talent Library, there are other practical alternatives for those who want to make a donation that can directly benefit the Talent Library:

  1. The Oregon Community Foundation (checks made out to OCF, with "Talent Library Fund" in the memo section).*
    This fund is a permanent endowment established to provide an annual stipend to the Talent Library to support Summer Reading, hot-off-the-press books, DVDs & periodicals — and additional open hours, if the fund grows to sufficient size. It can accept additional cash donations and bequests of any amount.
  2. The Talent Library Club (a new friends group). Visit the Library for information.
  3. The Jackson County Library Foundation (Buy-a-Shelf for $100 — or for other amounts see Patrick Mathewes, Talent Branch supervisor).

THANK YOU ALL! who have generously contributed your time, energy, and money over the years. Your support helped numerous programs and fulfilled library needs. It has also allowed the creation of the Talent Library Fund at OCF for continued support of the Public Library in Talent.

This website will remain active through 2015, and links to individual sections of the site will continue to work. The old home page, last updated in April 2015, is available here.

The Friend Zone

Friends of the Library are volunteers dedicated to the support, assistance, and promotion of our local library.

The Talent Friends have given extensive financial support to the Summer Reading and Storytime programs, provided volunteers to aid the library staff, maintained the glass display cases, sponsored free programs and Wednesday movies, and funded acquisition of additional books, magazines, and DVDs for our Talent Library.

Our successful Capital Campaign raised a third of million dollars, increasing the patron and book space in the new Talent Branch Library by over 1400 square feet.

The Friends have established a permanent endowment for Talent's public library, the "Talent Library Fund", at The Oregon Community Foundation. See footer.
