On the light rail! Great place to go for reading the paper or current magazines. Helpful staff. Nice bathrooms. We are lucky to have this in our town.

“beautiful old library”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2012

Haven't been there in about a decade, but the building itself is worth the visit. It was redone (have been there since then) and has all the glory of an old central library. Also great for weddings and events if they still do that...

“Loves me some Multnomah Library system!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2012

Having moved from the Microsoft-funded King County Library System in Seattle, WA, I was a bit apprehensive about what Multnomah County had to offer. I was worried for nothing. This library system has been easy-to-use with excellent online resources and a variety of ways they connect to each local community. I normally just reserve my books for pick-up at my local library, making my visits under 5 minutes but they are always filled with pleasant staff and are cheerful places for community members to spend time. Keep up the good work!
