  • Designated social and reading areas;
  • Community Room for Library programs and large group gatherings;
  • Two small-group study rooms;
  • Enhanced Library entrance with a separate prominent entry for City Offices.

Sustainability Design Goals

The remodeled building has been designed to be as energy efficient and sustainable as possible through the use of natural ventilation, day lighting, selection of materials, energy efficient lighting and mechanical units, and controls to monitor and adjust for use and time. The project did not apply for LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification although the LEED scorecard was used by the design team to track sustainable features and elements in the landscape/site, building design, and systems. The project has been registered with the US Green Building Council.

Library Lighting ExampleTualatin Public Library has won the 2009 Award for Excellence in Environmental Design.

Vision Statement

"The enhancement of the Tualatin Library will create an inviting community center where learning, discovery, and interaction will flourish, expressing a welcoming civic identity, embracing Tualatin's values and future.

2:00 PM - Tualatin Public Library: Documentary 'The Abolitionists'Date/Time: Sun, 02/01/2015 - 2:00pmRadicals. Agitators. Troublemakers. Liberators. Called by many names, the abolitionists tore the nation apart in order to make a more perfect union. Men and women, black and white, Northerners and Southerners, poor and wealthy, these passionate antislavery activists fought body and soul in the most important civil rights crusade in American history.What began as a pacifist movement fueled by persuasion and prayer became a fiery and furious struggle that forever changed the nation.Bringing to life the intertwined stories of Frederick Douglass, William Lloyd Garrison, Angelina Grimké, Harriet Beecher Stowe and John Brown, The Abolitionists takes place during some of the most violent and contentious decades in American history, amid white-hot religious passions that set souls on fire, and bitter debates over the meaning of the Constitution and the nature of race. The documentary reveals how the movement shaped history by exposing the fatal flaw of a republic founded on liberty for some and bondage for others, setting the nation on a collision course. In the face of personal risks -- beatings, imprisonment, even death -- abolitionists held fast to their cause, laying the civil rights groundwork for the future and raising weighty constitutional and moral questions that are with us still.LocationTualatin Public Library18878 SW Martinazzi AvenueTualatin, OR 97062United StatesSee map: Google Maps
