Library foundation

Ensuring Curry Public Library’s place as an innovator and the best community library in its class in the nation – NOW and in the FUTURE

Founded in 2016, the Curry Public Library Foundation of Gold Beach is a tax exempt 501(c)(3) organization established to help fund the mission and operations of Curry Public Library, with a focus on multi-year programs that are beyond the scope of the library’s operations budget. In 2018, the Library Foundation contributed $175,000 to the library’s amazing new learning center addition. The Foundation is building an endowment to fund library programs in perpetuity.
