About the Library

An example of a successful local partnership, the Garden Home Community Library began in 1983 when Tualatin Hills Park and Recreation District took over a closed elementary school and made space available to local volunteers to organize and operate a library. The initial collection was focused on books for preschool children. In July of 1996 Garden Home became the twelfth public library in the Cooperative Library Services. In recent years the library has been awarded the American Library Association “Star Library” rating for overall efficiency, and is nestled against the beautiful Fanno Creek trail.
