About the Library

Established in 1908, Forest Grove was the first tax-supported public library in Washington County. It has been in its current location since 1978.

Each of the 16 WCCLS libraries are individually governed – by either a city, Washington County, or a nonprofit board. Forest Grove is a city library.
