We look forward to seeing you when the library opens again!
In the meantime, if you have any library questions, you can reach us here:
Did you know that the Library now has popular TV shows, both recent and classic? From Downton Abbey and Hell on Wheels to Laverne and Shirley, who needs streaming? Okay, that may be a little over the top. But if you’re used to reserving your favorite show from another library, climb the stairs or take a ride on the elevator to the AV Lounge on the second floor. Look for the cases with the green labels at the end of the Blu-ray section.
You can pace yourself to stretch a favorite series as long as possible or binge-watch as you binge on popcorn. If you want to find out what TV shows are currently available, you can do a Keyword search for TV Series DVD in the new catalog. Click on the “Available Now” dropdown menu, then check the Tigard Public Library box. If you see something you like, you can reserve it right there. Or if you feel lucky, take a stroll down the TV aisle. You might pick up a gem that you can’t find anywhere else.
Please Be Seated!
Upstairs, downstairs, the library has upped its game. We have created new spaces, new looks and a variety of new seating locations.
New furniture decorates the new teen space on the first floor, and much of our existing furniture has taken a staycation. It’s still in the library; it’s just visiting other areas and finding new scenic views. Many of our overstuffed chairs have moved elsewhere on the first and second floors, including:
- Left of the Welcome Desk
- Beneath the weaving across from the Bestsellers section---a great place to rest your feet while you’re contemplating whether to check out a new book.
- At the top of the stairs facing the closest bank of public computers.
- Near the DVDs and Blu-rays upstairs.
- In the World Languages section upstairs accompanied by a beautiful book display.
And a few of the shyer chairs are tucked away discreetly in corners. They would love some attention.
Whether you’re reading a book or people-watching, try out some of our new, old seating and see if they give you a new perspective---either on the library or on life. That’s what we’re here for!
