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 an opportunity to practice tangling in an informal group setting - it's not an official instruction class. Geared for adults and teens (16+), beginners to experts are welcome. Bring your own drawing pen, pencil and smooth paper or feel free to bring whatever drawing tools you enjoy using. Coordinated by Nancy Spaulding, nancys@wccls.org. Fall Meetings: Tuesday, Sept. 23 & Monday, Oct. 27 then the 4th Tuesday of every month, 6:30 pm to 7:45 pm in the library's community room.Zentangle® is the copyrighted teaching method developed in 2005 by Maria Thomas and Rick Roberts.

6:15 PM to 8:30 PM - Cedar Mill Community Library: Arman is 33 and ready to make a change, starting with a run in the park. When he literally bumps into Amelie, he's dead-set on making a connection with her. Then Arman's best friend Benjamin suffers an unexpected stroke, relegating him to the hospital for weeks. Over the course of 2 autumns and 3 winters, Arman, Amelie, and Benjamin share the incidental moments, unexpected accidents, unconventional love stories and unforgettable memories that define who they are.

Selected films may contain objectionable material; therefore Film Club attendance is recommended for adults, aged 18 and over.
