Contribute to a Legacy

The Friends have established a Friends of the Everett Public Library Endowment with the Community Foundation of Snohomish County for the benefit of the library’s collections and programs. Only a portion of the interest is spent, allowing the principle to grow over the years. You may donate directly to this fund through the Community Foundation.

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.
