Beaverton City Library Main and Murray Scholls locations are proud to serve our diverse community, collecting materials and offering programs in multiple languages; library volunteers hail from over 35 countries. The library provides access to approximately 40 computers for public use, a typewriter, and a fax machine to send local and toll-free faxes.
