The Library is a Blast Celebrate 10th Birthday of Building
Saturday, August 23, from 2-4 p.m.
The Tigard Library opened at its current location in August 2004 a little over two years after Tigard voters passed a bond measure for its construction in May 2002.
On Saturday, August 23, from 2-4 p.m., the library will throw a birthday party for the building and you’re invited. Picanté, a Latin jazz band, will provide upbeat rhythms while guests enjoy festive food and marvel at the creations of a roving balloon artist.
The library’s community room will also be officially dedicated as the George and Yvonne Burgess Community Room in honor of two long-time Tigard residents and dedicated library volunteers. Party-goers will be able to commemorate the event at a photo booth, where they can have their pictures taken with or without whimsical props.
Guests can sign an oversized birthday card and explain what the library has meant to them. Displays and décor will provide library history from the past decade.
