History In 1992 several ladies, one of them the Estacada Library’s librarian at the time, decided to establish a non-profit organization and book store to handle the Estacada library’s discards, withdrawals and unwanted donations.
The Book Nook was born and housed in the old medical building down the block from the old library. The store remained in that location until the summer of 2010 when it was decided that a move was in order.
The name of the non-profit was changed to the Estacada Public Library Foundation when the community joined together in an effort to build a new library. They realized that a solid non-profit base was needed in order to put forth the enormous effort needed to accomplish such a lofty goal. They succeeded and in 2005 the new Estacada Public Library was opened - the direct result of many, many people working very, very hard.
In recent years it became obvious to the Directors of the Estacada Public Library Foundation that they could do far more with their gifts than they had been doing and they voted to change the name once again. The group is now known as the Estacada Area Literary Foundation. They have set their sights on supporting and gifting legal nonprofits in our area that are endeavoring to encourage reading, nurture art and music and other related programs. They wish to support all of the activities going on in our community that will enhance living in this wonderful part of Oregon. As in the past, the Estacada Public Library will remain our starship and we hope we’ll have many opportunities to gift to that institution of which we are so very proud and connected!
