About Cedar Mill Community Library Facebook icon Twitter icon

Cedar Mill residents organized the non-profit Cedar Mill Community Library Association in 1974. A Washington County bookmobile served the area for several months until a space was found in the Milltowner Shopping Center for the library, opening in January 1976. In 1978 the library moved into a new section of the shopping center, with 6,275 square feet of space. In May 1988 the library expanded to 15,400 square feet. In 2001, the library completed an expansion and remodeling project that increased the library to its current size of 24,500 square feet. The expansion was completed entirely with private fund-raising. In 2007, with population and library use increasing, the library board looked into expansion options. Central Bethany Development offered a 1,800 square foot retail space with very favorable leasing terms. The Bethany branch opened in July 2007.

6:30 PM to 7:45 PM - Cedar Mill Community Library: Zentangle ® is an easy-to-learn, “drawing as meditation” activity where you repeat decorative patterns and intuitively create art. It does not require artistic training. If you can draw a line or a circle, you can draw a tangle. This gathering is not an official instruction class but rather an opportunity to practice tangling in an informal group setting. Bring your own drawing pen, pencil and smooth paper or feel free to bring whatever drawing tools you enjoy using. Also, you are welcome to bring your own favorite cup of tea to sip while tangling in a relaxed atmosphere. Coordinated by Nancy Spaulding, nancys@wccls.org, this group is geared for adults and older teens (16+), and meets on the 4th Tuesday of every month, 6:30pm-7:45pm, in the library's community room. Beginners to experts are welcome.
