We now have a  collection of board games for all ages.  Join us on Wednesday evenings for game night and play one of our games. Ask at the desk during the rest of the week for a specific game and you can check it out to play in the library.

 As part of our Summer Reading Author Series join local author and renown wine photographer, Janis Miglavs, as he speaks about his latest project and shows slides of his photos taken in China while working on his book, China: The New Wine Frontier. 

DIY Flower Crowns

Feel like part of the royal court by making your own crown.

Kids ages 4-11 make a simple fairy crown with chenille sticks at the drop-in portion of the event. 

Teens and adults will use a variety of materials to make a more complicated crown with wire, leaves and flowers!  Registration is not required for the drop-in portion of this event. However, registration is required for the teens and adults portion.

Please call 503 625-6688 to register for this event.

Alex Zerbe, the Zaniac

If you think all magicians are alike, then you haven't seen the Zaniac! Yes, he's funny. Yes, he juggles. And yes, he does magic tricks. But it is the way he does all three at the same time that will have you spontaneously smiling and clapping with delight at Cannery Square Plaza on Tuesday, July 7, 2 p.m.

Sponsored by Washington County Cooperative Library Services.
