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 for the discussion of the book The Tsar of Love and Techno by AnthonyMarra. From thepublisher: “This stunning, exquisitely written collection introduces a cast ofremarkable characters whose lives intersect in ways both life-affirming andheartbreaking. A 1930s Soviet censor painstakingly corrects offendingphotographs, deep underneath Leningrad, bewitched by the image of a disgracedprima ballerina. A chorus of women recount their stories and those of theirgrandmothers, former gulag prisoners who settled their Siberian mining town.Two pairs of brothers share a fierce, protective love. Young men across theformer USSR face violence at home and in the military. And great sacrifices aremade in the name of an oil landscape unremarkable except for the almostincomprehensibly peaceful past it depicts. In stunning prose, with richcharacter portraits and a sense of history reverberating into the present, TheTsar of Love and Techno isa captivating work from one of our greatest new talents.” Newmembers are welcome to attend. Refreshments will be served.
