"How to Start an Investment Club" program at the Tualatin Library

News & Events - Thu, 2015-04-16 11:00
The old adage "there's safety in numbers'' can be applied to investment clubs in more ways than one. An investment club is a group of individual investors who come together to learn, share investing experiences and help each other become more successful investors.

Thursday, April 23, 6:30-8:00 p.m.
Tualatin Library Community Room
No prerequisites: anyone can learn how to invest for your future goals.

Clubs provide education, camaraderie and buying power, plus the confidence of knowing you don't have to go it alone. This workshop will review the ins and outs of starting an investment club and the advantages of learning and earning in a group.

Officers and members of the Portland, Oregon and SW Washington Chapter of Better Investing will present the workshops.

  • No library materials will be due on Sunday, April 26th, Monday, April 27th, or Tuesday, April 28th
  • 3M Cloud  e-books will not be available during this time.
  • Follow WCCLS on Facebook and Twitter to get the most frequent updates about the downtime
  • When the catalog and accounts are available again, we will also announce it on our News & Events blog

What will be available during the software updates?

What will be different when the WCCLS catalog and accounts are updated?
This update adds functionality to the staff version of the library catalog, but you will not notice any significant changes with the look or performance of the public catalog or with your library account. 

Thanks in advance for your patience while we work to upgrade our catalog and account software! We apologize for the inconvenience.

Grand Opening: Beaverton Murray Scholls Branch!

News & Events - Tue, 2015-04-07 14:15
Join Mayor Denny Doyle, city councilors, Beaverton City Library staff, and the Beaverton community for a celebration of the newly expanded and renovated Murray Scholls Branch Library.

Adults, children, and families are invited to the Grand Opening, to enjoy cake and fun activities for kids along with a few words by Mayor Doyle.

Saturday, April 11, at noon
1200 SW Murray Scholls Place, Suite 102

This event will celebrate a pivotal expansion of Beaverton’s library services. The Reser Family Children’s Room unofficially opened last month and residents have already expressed great enthusiasm. Since reopening, the number of patrons visiting the library has increased 30 percent over last year. More than 300 people attended events in February, including the first programs ever held during library open hours.

The additional 5,000 square feet includes a large new room for children and their caregivers to participate in additional storytimes and activities such as “Make It” Mondays and WOW Wednesdays. It also facilitated the repurposing of existing space for teens with more study tables and an erasable IdeaPaint wall where they can show-off their creativity. Teen programming will continue to grow in the coming months, as will the selection of young adult fiction and graphic novels in the teen book collection.

“We encourage families to explore and interact with the new space,” said John Finn, branch manager. “This project has been a great success, thanks in part to the Reser Family Foundation, the estate of Wayne Whitbeck, the Beaverton Library Foundation, and the Friends of Beaverton City Library, along with Gramor Development.”
