This year’s Oregon Primary Election includes a levy measure for the Washington County Cooperative Library Services (WCCLS) network. The Tualatin Library participates in WCCLS, receiving many benefits, such as interlibrary loan, shared electronic resources, book purchases, and more.
Measure 34-297 would renew a five-year levy to maintain current levels of countywide library service for another five years. It includes funding provisions for the following:
- Public library operations
- Reading programs for children
- Book purchases
- Resources for jobseekers
- Central support that links Washington County libraries together
Ballots are due by May 19, 2020. You can either mail yours or drop it off in the ballot drop box in the library parking lot until 8 pm on election night.
