Join in a Community Conversation about what you value in- and want to see for – our community! This broad conversation is one of many which will help to provide a foundation for the library and its goals both large and small, near and longer term. Libraries serve their local communities and we want to engage you in a discussion about what a thriving Oregon area community would look like in 3-5 years!
