Oak Lodge Library

  • Construction of a new library, approximately 19,500 sq. ft. (nearly three times larger than present)
  • Located within the Oak Lodge library service area (specific site to be determined after public input).
  • Residents will shape the library through a visioning process to meet needs and interests.

Gladstone Library

  • A modern library downtown of approximately 6,000 sq. ft., constructed on city-owned land.
  • Constructing the library is dependent on successful passage of a Gladstone ballot measure to eliminate the prohibition on using city general funds for the library. Gladstone residents are expected to vote on this measure in May 2018.
  • City of Gladstone will continue to subsidize library operations at current levels.
  • Operated by Clackamas County to minimize costs. Library staff will become county employees.
