Library building bond

Building better libraries for a better future

Thanks to the support of Multnomah County voters, Multnomah County Library is expanding several libraries and building a new East County Flagship Library for the community. These projects will begin in 2021 with a community engagement and input process around the expansion and renovation of Holgate and Midland libraries. See the full project sequence.
