About Tualatin Public Library  Facebook icon Twitter icon

Library service began in Tualatin in 1974 with a donated book collection in the Community Center. This was followed by a borrowed book van from the Washington County Cooperative Library Services, which was staffed by volunteers. 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.

Library Lighting Example

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, day lighting, energy-efficient lighting and mechanical units, and controls to monitor and adjust for use and time. Tualatin Public Library won the 2009 Award for Excellence in Environmental Design.

The Library currently houses more than 100,000 items and hosts 800+ programs each year.

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."
