Brief History of North Tillamook Library
In 1985, a group of North County citizens saw the need for a library to serve North Tillamook County. A Library Steering Committee was formed to pursue this dream. The committee evolved into the North Tillamook Library Board, a public benefit corporation in Oregon, with tax-exempt status under section 501(c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Members of the corporation are known as the North Tillamook Library Friends.
Initially, the Board held fundraising events and obtained matching grants to purchase and build the North Tillamook Library in Manzanita. One key grant was a 1986 Public Library Construction Grant of $98,265 awarded by the Oregon State Library Board. The ground-breaking ceremony was held January 15, 1987 and the new library building dedicated July 18, 1987. North Tillamook Library Friends raised funds and completed an entire interior renovation of the facility in early 2016, including repurposing the Hoffman Room to make it technology-friendly.
Today, the North Tillamook Library is a unique public-private partnership of two groups, the North Tillamook Library Friends and the Tillamook County Library. The North Tillamook Library Friends owns the land, library building and furnishings, pays for utilities and maintains the building and grounds. The Tillamook County Library provides books, periodicals, digital media, computers and a library staff.
We invite you to join both groups. Obtain a library membership card at the North Tillamook Library and make use of the full variety of library services. Financially support the North Tillamook Library by becoming a member of the North Tillamook Library Friends.
