About Garden Home Community Library Facebook icon

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. A 2004 expansion doubled the library space to 1,860 square feet.
