Tigard Library Seeks Local History Volunteers

The Tigard Library will hold an open house to acquaint people with its local history room on Monday, January 25, at 6 p.m. The library is looking for volunteers who will assist people in using its local history resources. Volunteers welcome library users to the room and answer basic questions about Tigard history and materials available at the library.

The local history room is currently open to the public on Mondays from 2 to 4 p.m. and by appointment.  Additional volunteers would allow the library to open the local history room more often. 

The library’s local history librarian will train volunteers to become familiar with the collection and provide an overview of local history projects and resources. Volunteers will provide basic assistance to the public and convey more complex inquiries to history librarians for further research.

For more information about the open house or to RSVP, please call 503-718-2517.
