The Aloha Community Library Association (ACLA) currently operates the Aloha Community Library. At this time, the Aloha Community Library is not a member of WCCLS, and there is no connection between WCCLS and Aloha Community Library in terms of library services, library materials or library cards.
The passage of Measure 34-235, the countywide library replacement levy, will allow the Aloha Community Library to become a full member of the Washington County Cooperative Library Services in 2016 and receive operating funds from WCCLS. The target date for this is December 2016.
Aloha Community Library Board and staff are working with WCCLS to map out a plan for connecting the Aloha Library to the WCCLS system – this involves everything from Summer Reading Program activities, to library catalog conversion and software installation, to staff training on WCCLS policies and procedures, to installation of a library security system to mapping out Courier delivery schedules for pick-up and drop-off of materials. In addition to everything that needs to be completed on the WCCLS side, Aloha Library is planning to remodel and relocate to the larger “Annex” space that they have been using for programs and book sales. This new 9600 Sq. Ft. space will be an excellent location to serve the Aloha community.
Construction is nearly complete on the new Aloha Community Library. The library will close as of Tuesday, November 1 to move and train staff. Reopening is scheduled for early December, and comes with new extended hours, storytimes, and Lego Free Play.
We know library patrons are eager to make Aloha Community Library their new WCCLS home library! Here is a preliminary timeline of activities that will take place in order to add Aloha Library to WCCLS. Stay tuned for updates in the coming months.
February – present: Aloha Community Library is conducting a capital campaign to support relocation and remodeling costs.
June – August 2016: Aloha Library participates in the WCCLS Summer Reading Program for children, teens and adults. Additional staff will be added to expand library hours and support the increased level of activity anticipated with WCCLS membership.
September 2016: Remodeling/construction is underway in the new Annex space!
October 2016: Catalog and patron records added to the WCCLS catalog; Aloha staff receives training on WCCLS Policies and Procedures and adding RFID tags to their collection.
November 2016: Old and new library locations will close for a month to facilitate moving collections. Remodeling should be completed and WCCLS will install equipment and continue training staff.
December 2016: Reopening, with new extended hours, storytimes, and Lego Free Play, is scheduled for early December. Book Club returns January 9th. Look forward to using your WCCLS card, turning in books and movies from other WCCLS libraries, and more! As soon as staff are settled into our new home and computer system, patrons will be able to pick up items on hold at Aloha.
January 2017: A “Grand Opening” celebration will be held!
