About meThe Cascades Raptor Center ( is a 501c3 non-profit nature center and wildlife hospital founded in 1987 in Eugene, Oregon. Through wildlife rehabilitation and public education, the Cascades Raptor Center fosters a connection between people and birds of prey. Our goal is to help the human part of the natural community learn to value, understand, and honor the role of wildlife in preserving the natural and cultural heritage of the Pacific Northwest. To accomplish this, the Raptor Center has two primary means: rehabilitation and release of orphaned, sick, and injured wildlife, primarily birds of prey; and public education through programming with resident birds.

About my libraryThe Cascades Raptor Center Library is composed of materials collected and created over the years by staff members, primarily by Executive Director Louise Shimmel. Materials are eclectic and varied, including falconry manuals written as early as the 13th century, children’s books with raptor characters, professional journals, surgical texts, and archival records.

The Library is organized into three collections. Reading With Raptors materials are children’s books used in educational programming. Non-Circulating materials are those which are old, rare, or used frequently for reference. Circulating materials are items that are available for checkout by staff and volunteers. For members of the public who are interested in reading materials found in this library, please visit to find items in public or university libraries near you.

The Cascades Raptor Center Library was inventoried and cataloged by Charlie McNabb, MA, MLIS in 2016.
