Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the closure of all City of Tigard buildings, including the Tigard Public Library building, remains in effect until further notice. City leadership continually assesses the developing situation and provides updates on the City of Tigard website.
Despite our building being closed, the Library team is still working from home, and we are focusing on creative new ways that we can be here for you! Our Website is up-to-date with our latest news, as are our Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram accounts. We continue to serve our community by answering your phone and email questions, developing virtual programming, sharing resources via social media, providing access to electronic resources through WCCLS, and reaching out to you with individual emails to let you know about the status of your account.
While we are so fortunate that our Library team has been able to learn new technology very quickly so that we can continue to serve you, we are all looking forward to the day when we can once again open our doors and see you in person.
Be well, stay safe, and thank you.
Halsted Bernard, Director of Library Services
The library building is closed, but library staff are creating new ways to encourage your creativity, support your lifelong learning, and keep you informed.
Families; sing along with your favorite story time presenter, write a letter to our beloved library mascot, or discover something new to read. Folks of all ages; submit a poem, make some art, or learn a new skill.
You can explore all these events from the safety and comfort of your home. Take a look at our virtual programs and enjoy!
