If your membership has lapsed, we hope you choose to renew! If you haven’t joined yet, we welcome you to do so now.

Not sure if you have current membership? Life gets busy and it can be hard to keep track! Email us at and we will let you know.

You can mail membership dues to: West Slope Community Library, 3678 SW 78th Avenue, Portland, OR 97225. Or, hand in your payment to our staff at the front desk.

Thank you, Friends!

Vote Yes for Libraries!

West Slope Community Library A Washington County library levy replacement appears on the Nov. 3 ballot: Measure 34-235. The Friends of West Slope Community Library urge you to vote “Yes!”

This levy will replace the 2010 levy which expires next July. It will provide 40 percent of the funding needed for West Slope Community Library’s operating expenses. It is a big deal for us!

The proposed levy rate is 22 cents/$1,000, an increase of five cents and the first rate increase in ten years. The levy will continue to pay for open hours, books and other materials, staff, and children’s programs. It will also continue to pay for Washington County Cooperative’s services which include the online catalog, courier service and Wi-Fi service. All county libraries will benefit from this levy.

The November election this year has only two measures on the ballot in our part of the county. We need every “Yes” vote we can get in order to keep West Slope Community Library and the whole library system strong. Please vote yes and encourage your friends and neighbors in the county to do the same.

The Friends of West Slope Community Library thank you for your support!
