About the Current Building:
The current Tigard Library building opened in 2004, after Tigard voters passed a $13 million bond measure in 2002. In addition to bequests from Grace Tigard Houghton and Neva Root, former teachers and longtime library volunteers, the Friends of the Library and the Tigard Library Foundation also made significant contributions for artwork and books. Special features include four drive-up book drops, a large Children's Room with child-sized furniture and program room, three quiet study rooms and a separate Young Adult area with eight computers.
