Support the Friends with Fred Meyer rewards

Fred Meyer Community RewardsYou can help Friends of the Tualatin Library earn donations by shopping at your local Fred Meyer store. Fred Meyer is donating money to nonprofits based on customers who link their rewards card to their favorite nonprofit. This does not affect your personal rewards points; both accounts earn points. It’s a win-win for you and for the library.
