Library building bond

Great libraries. Great communities.

Thanks to the support of Multnomah County voters, Multnomah County Library is expanding several libraries and building a new library in East County for the community. See the full project sequence. As projects begin, there are exciting ways to get involved with listening sessions and community meetings.

Chapter One projects

These projects, which include Albina and North Portland as well as Holgate and Midland libraries, are starting with architecture teams led by women of color. Get involved through listening and feedback sessions, and build libraries that represent your community! Head to the Chapter One projects page for more information about these libraries and events.

Learn more about our commitment to community engagement as well as our capital planning project principles.
