The future of Tillamook County’s libraries will be on the May ballot. Make no mistake: if the proposed library levy – measure 29-146 – does not pass our libraries will close. That would be nothing short of a tragedy.
The proposed levy will continue funding at the existing rate, with no increase in taxes, for library operations in Tillamook, Manzanita, Bay City, Garibaldi, Pacific City and Rockaway Beach, as well as the Bookmobile. Literally thousands of people use our libraries every month and we must make sure this valuable resource continues into the future.
Our county library system, staffed by dedicated team of librarians, provides a vast array of services for the people of Tillamook County – Internet access, books, magazines, newspapers, children and adult programs, research assistance, interlibrary loans. The list goes on and on. Our libraries offer reading programs to help students and adults and the Bookmobile visits senior centers and those who can’t readily visit a library location. Children’s reading programs alone had nearly 6,000 individual participants last year.
Additionally libraries help create community and support the economy by providing resources for job seekers, facilities for meetings and access to tremendous amounts of credible, factual information.
I respectfully urge all Tillamook County voters to endorse the library levy on the May ballot. The county’s libraries are a critical resource for all of us and without an affirmative vote we’ll lose a vital piece of our communities that will be impossible to replace.
Together with volunteers like you, our goal is collect as much plastic as possible to be used for the creation of recycled shampoo bottles for P&G’s Head & Shoulders. Join our team in making the world we share a better place to live, and grow.
Who: Volunteers Like You! What: Oregon Coast Clean Up When: Sunday, April 23, 2017 – 12:30 pm to 4:30 pm Where: Manzanita Beach, Oregon

Community service hours can be awarded if requested, and groups welcome. Items you will not want to forget: Refillable Drinking Container, Warm Clothing, and Rain Gear!
Ocean Blue will provide drinking water, gloves, and reusable collection containers because WE DO NOT USE PLASTIC BAGS at our clean up events.
This year, we will be sending the beach plastic to be upcycled into shampoo bottles for P&G’s Head & Shoulders because keeping the rubbish out of landfills is priceless.
