Camas Public Library turns 90
Events will help mark 'living room’s' milestone
Tuesday, April 9, 2013
For the past 90 years, the Camas Public Library has been a community destination.
Often referred to as the "living room of Camas," by staff, the library is a place to study, meet people, learn, and it also serves as a cultural center.
The library first opened in the back of Thayer's drugstore in April 1923. The 90th birthday celebration also coincides with National Library Week, which begins Sunday. There are a number of events planned to celebrate both occasions.
"We're emphasizing that with some of the events we're offering," said David Zavortink, director. "It's the 'third place,' after home and work."
