About the Library

Cedar Mill Community Library

Located outside city boundaries with no municipal support, Cedar Mill residents organized the non-profit Cedar Mill Community Library Association in 1974. A Washington County bookmobile served the area for several months until a small volunteer-run library was opened in 1976 with help from WCCLS. The library grew over the years and now occupies 24,500 square feet with a collection of 250,000 items and active services and programs for all ages.

The county continues to provide most operating support but building and capital needs are provided through private fundraising, book sales and the Second Edition Resale Shop.  To better serve our growing population, Cedar Mill opened its Bethany Branch in 2007 and plans to expand that facility.

Upcoming Library Events

Friday, April 28, 2017
10:30 AM to 12:00 PM - Cedar Mill Library: Over the last half a billion years, there have been five mass extinctions, when the diversity of life on earth suddenly and dramatically contracted. Scientists around the world are currently monitoring the sixth extinction, predicted to be the most devastating extinction event since the asteroid impact that wiped out the dinosaurs. This time around, the cataclysm is us. In this major book about the future of the world, New Yorker writer Elizabeth Kolbert blends intellectual and natural history and field reporting into a powerful account of the mass extinction unfolding before our eyes. You are invited to join the Owl Book Group - newcomers are always welcome - for a great book discussion at 10:30 AM in the library's 2nd floor Lewis Community Room. Unless otherwise noted, the group typically meets on the last Friday of each month. Find a list of titles at http://library.cedarmill.org/services/book-clubs/
