Library Book Sales & a Grand Opening
If you’re the type who just can’t resist buying books at bargain prices while supporting libraries at the same time, you’re in luck this April! As Carly mentioned in a previous post, the Friends of the Multnomah County Library is holding their Spring Used Book Sale soon! We’ve listed a couple more happening this month.

Things are looking a little brighter for Clackamas County residents with the opening of the Sunnyside Library (13793 SE Sieben Park Way Clackamas, OR 97015). This library replaces the much smaller one that was located near the Clackamas Town Center. They are holding plenty of Grand Opening activities– starting it off with a dedication and open house on Thursday, April 19th at 2pm. I’m bummed I’ll miss this event but I can’t wait to visit Sunnyside in the very near future!
