Cool off at your Library this Labor Day Weekend

An extended period of very hot weather is expected over the next several days in Washington County.

“We urge people to limit their time outdoors if possible, wear loose-fitting and lightweight clothing, drink plenty of water, and stay in air-conditioning as much as they can,” says Washington County Deputy Health Officer Dr. Christina Baumann.

Check your library's hours for this weekend - they all have air conditioning!

In addition to regular hours, North Plains Public Library will be open on Labor Day, 10AM-7PM. Library materials will be available on a self-service basis.

Tualatin Public Library will be open extended hours on Saturday (10AM-7:30PM). Additionally, the Library lobby and Community Room will be open 1-7PM on Monday (Labor Day). Library services will not be available that day. Please call or check their website to confirm extended hours.
