Walk ’n’ Roll to the Library Week|

Make the most of the spectacular September weather
and our location on the Fanno Creek Trail by walking,
biking, scooting or skating to the library between
September 7 and 13. Visit us at the Children’s or Adult
Reference Desks, tell us that you walked or rolled (on
human-powered wheels) and get a small prize and a
big high five!

You can find trail and bike maps here
