Janette Gill got involved with the Cedar Mill Library around 1975 and quickly became a popular storyteller. In this interview, Janette discusses her transformation into a storyteller, volunteer, fundraiser and ultimately, Board President of the Cedar Mill Library in the 70s and 80s.  This interview is part of a larger project funded by the Oregon Cultural Trust and the Cultural Coalition of Washington County to capture the memories of our three decades of service by digitizing and providing online access to historic photographs, articles, documents and oral histories about the library's founding.
