Libraries will return to their regular schedules July 5. Please check our schedule for your library's hours.
Library service began in Tualatin in 1974. In 1977, Tualatin Public Library opened in a former house in Tualatin’s Community Park. From 1985-2007, the library operated in an 8,500 square foot space within the Civic Center building. A 2004 bond measure provided funds to expand the library. The $9.4 million, 22,500 square foot Tualatin Public Library opened in 2008.
The Library features dedicated Children and Teen areas, comfortable seating and social areas, a fireplace, two small-group meeting rooms, and a Community Room for Library programs and large gatherings. A unique highlight of the Library is its striking display of an articulated mastodon skeleton, which is mounted in front of an etched-glass image of a mastodon. The remodeled building was designed to be as energy efficient and sustainable as possible through the use of natural ventilation and energy-efficient lighting.
The Library currently houses more than 100,000 items and hosts 800+ programs each year.
