WCCLS 40th Anniversary News

In case you haven't heard, Washington County Cooperative Library Services is celebrating its 40th Anniversary this year!  To celebrate this major milestone, Library Passports have been created for Washington County residents so they can visit libraries across the county and get their passport stamped.  For each library you visit and get a stamp, it makes you eligible to enter a prize drawing full of really nice items such Apple iPad Air 2, film tickets to the Sherwood Center for the Arts, passes to the Pittock Mansion, a wine tasting, and plus others!  Passports can be stamped from now until December 16, 2017.

Can't make it to multiple libraries?  That's OK too.  Mascots from each Washington County library got together and toured multiple libraries within the cooperative.  They had their photos taken which was a lot of fun for them (and us) which resulted in this slideshow of their adventures.

Want to get in on some more fun?  Tonight, the library is hosting a musical concert for adults.  Kora: Music of West Africa.  Sean Gaskell will give a performance and educational demonstration on the kora, an ancient 21-stringed harp from West Africa. He will feature traditional songs that are the heart and soul of the kora's musical repertoire in addition to some of his own personal compositions.  The concert will be held in the Burgess Community Room at 7:00 p.m.
