UPDATE: Don't forget to take the online survey! The Commissioners are accepting input through an online survey that takes about 5 minutes to complete.

On June 28, the County Commissioners took the first steps toward placing a Multnomah County Library District on November's ballot. They have called for a series of conversations to gain input from the community about the Library funding situation, and the way forward. There will be a series of five Community Listening Sessions at neighborhood libraries, an online survey debuting in the coming weeks, and a Public Hearing on July 31st.
Please spread the word about these important community conversations.

Public Hearing with the County Commissioners
The Community Listening Sessions are a venue for you to learn about the Library funding situation, an opportunity for you to share what the Library means in your life, and to suggest the future that you would like for our Library. Director of Libraries Vailey Oehlke and at least one County Commissioner will be at every meeting to answer questions and listen to comments.
As a Friend, we need your help to show the Commissioners that our award-winning Library deserves the stability that a Library District can provide. Please attend at least one Community Listening Session, and consider giving public testimony to the County Commissioners at the Public Hearing on July 31st.
