About the Library

Bethany Library - part of Cedar Mill & Bethany Community Libraries

The Bethany Library is located in the Bethany Village Shopping Center off of Bethany Boulevard.

With population and library use increasing, the Cedar Mill Community Library board looked into expansion options. Central Bethany Development offered a 1,800 square foot retail space with very favorable leasing terms. The Bethany Library opened in July 2007. The library moved across Central Drive to its current location in June 2009, expanding to 4,600 square feet of space.  The library is exploring options to increase its space to serve our fast growing community.
