About Tigard Public Library Facebook icon Twitter icon

The Tigard Public Library began in 1963 as a project of the Junior Women's League. The donated collection was housed in a back room of City Hall. In 1976 the library moved into a former mattress factory on Main Street where it operated for ten years. From 1986 to 2004, the library operated in the Tigard Civic Center, constructed in 1986. In May 2002, Tigard voters passed a $13 million bond measure to build a new library. The new 47,000 square foot two-story building opened its doors to the public in the Summer of 2004.
