Hello.  In 2015, The Oregon Community Foundation (OCF) partnered with our donors to invest in a statewide needs assessment<http://www.oregoncf.org/news-resources/reports/current/library-needs-assessment-2015> of Oregon public libraries.  Library leaders across the state participated in focus groups, personal interviews and responded to a survey to identify the greatest needs of Oregon public libraries.  We are grateful for the library community's involvement in this research effort, which has garnered national attention as the first-ever needs assessment conducted of Oregon's public libraries.

In the last Community Grant Program<http://www.oregoncf.org/grants-scholarships/grants/community-grants> cycle, we received more funding requests from Oregon libraries than ever before.  While the application process is competitive, we encourage you to apply for funding should you have a project that aligns with the Community Grant Program guidelines<http://www.oregoncf.org/Templates/media/files/grants/community_grants/Community%20Grant%20guidelines(1).pdf>.  The next application deadline is July 15th.

We look forward to our ongoing partnership with you and are grateful for the important role you play in strengthening Oregon communities.
