Aloha Community Library Grand Opening on Sept. 22nd

The Washington County Cooperative Library Services congratulates the organizers behind the formation of a new, community library in Aloha. Beginning September 22nd, the volunteer-run library will open to the public for regular library service 12 hours per week. The library is located at 17683 SW Farmington Road, Suite E, Aloha, in the Bales Thriftway Market Center (map). The library will officially open to the public at 10 am on Saturday, September 22nd, with a ribbon-cutting scheduled for 11 am.

At this time, the Aloha Community Library is not a full member of WCCLS, its books and materials are not available through the WCCLS catalog, and Aloha will maintain its own circulation and catalog system.

The Aloha Community Library Association (ACLA) is a 501(C)(3) non-profit association formed in 2011 to establish and implement library service in Aloha. It is the intent of ACLA, and of WCCLS, that the library eventually is admitted as a full-member of WCCLS. WCCLS is actively engaged in mentoring ACLA to assure its success. Our goal is that ACLA becomes ready to be a full WCCLS member library in 2016. To read more about ACLA, visit their website.
