Tillamook County Library
The library is so much more than a place to borrow books! It’s also an amazing community resource, with information on cultural programming in the region and knowledgeable staff who can help point tourists in the right direction.
Discover what’s beyond the shelves
You can find rotating art exhibitions in many library branches, showcasing work by regional artists. Sometimes, these creators come to the library to speak and share their work personally with the community.
For children and families, the library hosts a regular story hour, which you can attend at a number of different branches along the coast. Check out the schedule here. Come listen to fun books, learn about new children’s literature and meet other families at these special get-togethers.
You can browse the monthly newsletter to see what’s going on in town and make sure you don’t miss any fun events.
A new home for the books
For over a century, Tillamook has been supporting its libraries as an important part of the community. The Tillamook County Main Library, in particular, has served as the hub for all county library activity. In the 1960s, funds were approved to purchase and renovate the Haupert Motor Company in town. The renovated facility served as a great home for the library for nearly 40 years. Eventually, though, the growing collection and heavy use necessitated a newer and larger building. Groundbreaking for the new Main Library started in 2005, and the current Tillamook County Headquarters Library opened in the fall of 2006. With better technology, community meeting rooms and more space for the stacks, the new building has been a boon for our community and the county library system.
