"They say in every library there is a single book that can answer the question that burns like a fire in the mind."

- Lemony Snicket

Reading for All

Leave a legacy.

Amy Hay proudly supports The Library Foundation. 

The Library Foundation helps librarians bring life-changing books and programs into the lives of children, from birth through high school. These programs level the playing field for children at risk for low literacy. Last year, the library reached nearly half of the children in Multnomah County with proven literacy programs, made possible by gifts to The Library Foundation. 


Early exposure to books and reading is our first taste of freedom, instills hope in the face of challenging circumstances, and helps each of us fulfill our true potential.
