Contribute to a Legacy

The Community Foundation of Snohomish County manages the library’s many endowments. These endowments help us make the library a better place for everyone in our community.

The Friends have established an endowment with the Community Foundation of Snohomish County for the benefit of the library’s collections and programs. Only the interest is spent. You may donate directly to this fund.

You may also donate to the Everett Public Library Fund in Honor of Mark Nesse through the Community Foundation. The library uses the interest to support programs, services, and collections

If you are interested in establishing an endowment, contact the Library Director or the Community Foundation for more information.

Friends of the Library Newsletter 

In the Friends Newsletter you will find information about our annual meeting, our pick for Everett Reads, author receptions, and give-aways for members.
