Celebrating the library’s 40th anniversary

Tualatin libraryThe Tualatin Library will celebrate its 40th anniversary on Sunday, November 19th. The celebration starts at 1 pm; cake will be served.

There will also be an hour of music by the hearth provided by the group Under the Lake starting at 2 pm. “Effervescent, vivacious and all-together engaging” is how smoothjazz.com describes Under the Lake’s music, an original sound that one reviewer says “doesn’t sit easy in any category, thanks to its heavy doses of funkified bass and occasional soul references.” You can sample their sound on their website.

A Friends of Tualatin Library donation supports the music performance as part of the library’s Sunday Music Series.

Our inventory changes daily, so we invite you to check back often to see what’s new. We’ve received generous donations in recent weeks from the community and the library, so we have books and media that weren’t available at our big November sale.
