About the Library

North Plains Public Library

In 2002, the Friends of the North Plains Public Library converted a 590-square-foot janitor's closet in the Jessie Mays Community Hall into a library which operated there from 2003 to 2006.  In April 2006, Wayne Holm, CEO of Oregon-Canadian Forest Products of North Plains, built and donated to the Friends a 2,500-square-foot library adjacent to City Hall.  In July 2007, the library joined the Washington County Cooperative Library Services. 

Library personnel, furnishings, operations, and all materials are managed by the City of North Plains.  The Library is open 50 hours per week.  Its many programs include a weekly storytime, an annual summer reading program, monthly art and quilt exhibits, monthly book club and writers’ group meetings, author lectures, and the First Friday Flick. The Library has 11 public computers with Internet access and the Microsoft Office 2010 suite of programs.  Free WiFi is available for those with laptops.  For more information, visit our website.

7:00 PM - North Plains Public Library: Join us as we discuss the book A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman. From the publisher: “A grumpy yet loveable man finds his solitary world turnedon its head when a boisterous young family moves in next door. Meet Ove. He's acurmudgeon, the kind of man who points at people he dislikes as if they wereburglars caught outside his bedroom window. He has staunch principles, strictroutines, and a short fuse. People call him the bitter neighbor from hell,but must Ove be bitter just because he doesn't walk around with a smileplastered to his face all the time? Behind the cranky exterior there is a storyand a sadness. So when one November morning a chatty young couple with twochatty young daughters move in next door and accidentally flatten Ove'smailbox, it is the lead-in to a comical and heartwarming tale of unkempt cats,unexpected friendship, and the ancient art of backing up a U-Haul. All of whichwill change one cranky old man and a local residents' association to their veryfoundations.” New members are welcome to attend. Refreshments willbe served.
