Thanks to everyone who participated in the Adult Summer Reading Program. More than 40 people signed up, and seven lucky winners were picked during last week’s grand prize drawing. A binder of the postcard book reviews will soon be available for patrons to review. If you’ve filled out your reading log but haven’t brought it in to receive your coupons, you have until 6:00 p.m. next Friday, September 5 to do so.
The parking lot book drop has been damaged and is only minimally functional. To assist patrons and staff in ensuring accurate and timely check-in of materials, we are asking that you return all items inside the library while we are open. The outside book drop will not be accessible at that time. You may still return items to the outside book drop when we are closed, or you may return them to the Adult Community Center dropbox or any other Clackamas County Library. The library will soon be installing a new book drop in the outside brick wall of the library. In the meantime, thank you for your patience!
Mark your calendars! The Friends of the Library annual used book sale is coming up in September. The sale will be held in the Community Room and will be open during library hours Friday, September 19 - Sunday, September 21.
