About the Library

Cedar Mill Community Library

Located outside city boundaries with no municipal support, 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 small volunteer-run library was opened in 1976 with help from WCCLS. The library grew over the years and now occupies 24,500 square feet with a collection of 250,000 items and active services and programs for all ages.

The county continues to provide most operating support but building and capital needs are provided through private fundraising, book sales and the Second Edition Resale Shop.  To better serve our growing population, Cedar Mill opened its Bethany Branch in 2007 and plans to expand that facility.

6:30 PM to 7:45 PM - Cedar Mill Library: Inspired by the Second Great Awakening to become a missionary, Massachusetts native George Henry Atkinson (1819-89) arrived in Oregon City during the summer that Congress established the Oregon Territory. Called by early historians 'The Father of Public Education in Oregon,' Atkinson played multiple leadership roles in that field for four decades. A respected community leader, his wide range of interests encompassed railroading, meteorology, botany, agriculture, Indian affairs and mining. Within his own Congregational denomination he stood as the prime symbol of its efforts to extend its presence into the Pacific Northwest. Author and retired minister Donald Sevetson places Atkinson's life and work within its geographic setting and its historical context, providing a candid picture of the man, his setting, and his legacy. This free program for adults will be presented in the library's second floor meeting room.
