Friends, there is so much I love about the Aloha Community Library Association!
This is an association seeking to share with and serve those in our community. The effectiveness of your library’s mission in the coming months depends on your generosity and dedication. Right now and through October 20, your generosity to step up and support the library with your monetary gifts will be matched through an anonymous gift of $10,000. This matching campaign will ensure the hiring of paid staff allowing the library to grow in the ways necessary to become part of the WCCLS. Please help us “Open this gift of $10,000”. As of today, we have raised roughly 1/2 have that amount and have passed the $5,000 mark.

October 2, 2013: The Aloha Community Library Association announced today that their hours of operation are expanding effective today to 37 hours per week from the previous schedule of only 29 hours week. This is a reflection of the expanding interest and community support of the library and its ability to sufficiently staff library hours. Currently, 2-3 trained volunteers are available for each hour of operation. The new hours are posted on the website home page and are included graphically below. We are adding additional hours to each day we have been open previously so that every day we are open from 10am to 8pm except Saturday when we close at 5pm. Storytime continues to be offered each Wednesday morning from 10:30-11:30am.

September 21, 2013. The Aloha Community Library Association has been amazingly blessed by the first year of our operations! In the last fiscal year, we raised almost $60,000. Our target for this fiscal year (July 2013-June 2014) is to raise $100,000. We have also been blessed by an amazing variety of talented, hardworking professionals who have donated their time to helping achieve our short term objectives and long term mission. As we grow our organization, we will be able to provide additional services to our community and build the infrastructure needed to become a member of the Washington County Cooperative Library Service (WCCLS). Looking ahead, continuing to perform well in the financial management area is essential for our success.

Add a Leaf to the Aloha Community Library Tree of Knowledge
Because the library is not yet part of the Washington County library system, we rely on your support to keep us going. In celebration of our one year anniversary, a group of library volunteers has offered a $10,000 challenge grant to double your donation for the next month. For example, your tax-deductible donation of $50 will be matched with another $50 for a total of $100. That $100 will be used to fund a paid staff position to ensure that the library can stay open consistently during our hours of operation, and to help us meet Washington County Cooperative Library Services qualification requirements. You can read more about our library qualification progress by reading this week’s article about us in the Beaverton Leader (thanks to writer Anna Marum). Read more →
The Aloha Community Library began our library operations last year on September 22, 2012. Thanks to the outpouring of community and volunteer support, we are now open 29 hours per week with nearly 10,000 items in our collection. We have weekly story-time programs, as well as special events for teens and adults. We provide public internet access on 6 workstations plus WiFi. Please help us celebrate at our Family Birthday Celebration on Saturday, September 14 from 2:00-4:00pm. We’ll be enjoying birthday cake, cotton candy, games and face-painting.
In honor of our birthday and as a gift to our borrowers, the Aloha Community Library is declaring a fines amnesty for all overdue library materials for the month of September. We want you to come back and check out more materials and help us celebrate our first birthday!
