Library Birthday

Library BirthdayIt's our 35th birthday!

In 1982, the Wilsonville Public Library opened in a 1600 square foot space on Wilsonville Road. That first year, the library checked out 27,000 items to Wilsonville residents. In 2017, the library has a 20,000 square foot building and checks out 40,000 items per month. The library has grown in so many other ways as well, and we couldn’t do it without you.

The Wilsonville Public Library celebrates its 35th birthday on Tuesday, Feb. 14. Join in the festivities with a birthday party! There will be free birthday cake and coffee from 2-4 pm provided by the Wilsonville Friends of the Library and the Wilsonville Public Library Foundation.

Since birthdays usually involve not just cake but also gifts, the library will give waivers of overdue fines (up to $10) to library users who come to the library that day. Just bring your library card to the Circulation Desk and say, “Happy Birthday!”

Looking for a way to give back to the Library? Become a volunteer, join the Wilsonville Friends of the Library, donate books, or give to the Wilsonville Public Library Foundation. Whatever way you choose to help, we thank you!
