Multnomah County Library is 445,000 cardholders strong, and counting.
Each one of them has reason to be proud. Our library is busy and vibrant, with the second-highest circulation in the nation, topped only by New York Public Library.
Over the past couple years, we visited each and every one of our 19 neighborhood libraries, capturing images of nearly 2,500 patrons with their library cards. This collection of photos offers a sweet, poignant and sometimes humorous look at our library. Check out the photos of those who love our library - maybe you'll find a familiar face!
