Jeanne Carpenter "The vision of a 21st century library located in the heart of Oregon is so exciting. We're building not only an educational monument, but also another third space for our community: a place for community catherings full of thoughtful discussion to move our community forward. It is especially impressive to see the Village and Library Boards, staff, and so many local citizens step forward to volunteer with the library's future. That kind of volunteerism is a testament to what a true change agent a modern library can be for a growing community."
Cynthia DiCamelli "The Oregon Public Library is an important and valuable part of our community. It's so much more than books! Free public wi-fi, access to newspapers and magazines, computers, databases, even language instruction! With storytime programs, crafting programs, and many more resources, our library is a center of lifelong learning."
Randy Glysch "Libraries provide opportunities to explore, to expand our knowledge and transform our minds, and stretch our imaginations, to connect with information. They also provide a place to gather with others in the community."
Bob Head, Owner of Orange Whip Design "A library is more than books, it's a vital community resource that offers something for everyone. As a youth sports coach, and proud board member of Oregon Youth Baseball, I am very excited about the opportunities this new library will create for all of the great kids and families of our community, now, and for generations to come."
Jason Mahnke "I am excited about the plans for the new library here in Oregon. Libraries are of of the places where people from all walks of life in a community come together. In a culture where we are more fragmented, isolated, and harried, a modern library is a place where individuals can truly feel like they're part of a community."
Jenny Nelson "The last two years, i Have had the honor of being on the Library board and supporting the awesome librarians we have in Oregon. We are looking to partner with the Village to be able to create a modern library for the greater Oregon area. I am so excited to be part of creating children and teen spaces that can encourage the same love of reading that I experienced."
