Any time there’s a new library opening, it’s definitely a time for celebration. More likely than not, we’re going to be there taking in the festivities. 2010 was great for library lovers since Multnomah County Library had recently opened their new Kenton location earlier in the year and now here we were for Troutdale’s Grand Opening Celebration.
Pearl and I took the long ride from downtown Portland to Troutdale via public transit on this warm summer day. We talked about how we admired the fact that the library was making sure that all corners of the county had access to books, computers, and library events. We made it in time for the dedication ceremony with speeches from Director of Libraries Vailey Oehlke, architect David Wark and others.
Hard hats were being given out to kids. Refreshments were being handed out. A fun time was had by all, we’re sure. Enjoy these pictures from that day!
