Aloha, OR, April 16, 2014. This week we again have a lot going on at the Aloha Community Library! In case you didn’t know, we are in a new space! We spent last weekend celebrating with 5 different events and enjoyed the company of hundreds of well wishers and event participants thanks to collaborative gift from the Edwards Center and WCCLS. You can read about our events thanks to Anna Marum of the Beaverton Leader who posted two exciting stories about us! One was a story about our grand re-opening event and one about our wonderful challenge grant program for raising money to fund our operations.

Aloha, April 14, 2014. As part of the many activities this past weekend, the Aloha Community Library Association announced that they were awarded an amazing challenge grant of $15,000! The challenge is to raise $15,000 in the next 6 weeks (by May 31, 2014). If we do so, we will be awarded with another $15,000 by 2 generous donors who have combined their resources to make this available to us. As of Sunday evening, we had already received $6,310! This is a fantastic start to this campaign. Read more →
The staff and volunteers of the Aloha Community Library Association have been pretty busy these past few weeks – preparing for our upcoming move, performing a major library book sale, finding new spaces for our Library Annex, raising funds, etc. Sometimes, its just good to take a breath and reflect on the goodness of it all! Last weekend (March 13,14, 15) we held our book sale in our temporary Annex space (formerly Blockbuster Video). We told you about that sale in a previous post but we didn’t let you know yet about how successful we were!

The library is moving! We will be open for our regular hours on Saturday, March 29, and Monday, March 31. Come in and stock up on books and DVDs to carry you through our closure! All materials will be due after our grand re-opening on Saturday, April 12. You may continue to return materials to our outdoor book drop during our closure.
The new library is located just across the parking lot from our current library, at 17455 SW Farmington Road (between Aloha Animal Medical Center and US World Class Taekwondo). Grand re-opening festivities will begin at 10am on Saturday, April 12. A storybook character parade begins at 10am at the current library and ends at the new library. All children are welcome to join us along with at least one adult. All are welcome to stay for a special storytime right after the parade. The program continues at 11am with a group of very special speakers to help us celebrate this landmark occasion. Join us for goodies and tour the library!
February 1, 2014. In the last few weeks, we have announced a number of changes including promoting Terri Palmer, Director of Volunteer Services to the important position of Interim Library Director. In this new role, Terri will formally oversee much of the important work needed to advance our operation to the level expected by WCCLS in order to join them within the next few years. This work will also include overseeing and guiding the transition to our new space this spring. We wanted to let all of you know what a great resource Terri is for the Aloha Library!
