Get Involved

What do you want your library to look like? Join in these upcoming community events and let’s build these libraries together.
The project team is looking for input on what kind of art people would like to see in the new East County Library. They’ve developed a very short survey for people to take both online and in person through leave behind cards that will be available starting this week at Rockwood, Gresham, Troutdale and Fairview libraries.

Online survey links: English, Spanish, Vietnamese, Chinese and Russian. Please feel free to fill it out as well! They’d love to hear from you.

Community Event at Gresham Library on July 11

There’s also an upcoming community event at Gresham Library on July 11. This event will be for folks to get the latest updates on the design of the new East County Library and continue to share their feedback! I will share a flyer in a few weeks when we have it at the end of this month so you can share it broadly then as well.
