  • Founders' Oral History - Travel back in time to the early days of the library's founding. Listen as these community activists share their memories of the grassroots movement that resulted in today's Cedar Mill Community Library.
  • Community Oral History - In 2009, in honor of Oregon's sesquicentennial, we recorded 14 interviews with local immigrants and descendents of immigrants to illustrate the importance of immigration on our community. More interviews were added in 2011. This Oral History Project was done with the help of Matt Hiefield and his history students at Sunset High School. More information...

Founder History 2014 Vi and Bob Metzler

As part of the Cedar Mill Library's 40th anniversary celebration in 2014, librarians Mark Richardson and Lynne Erlandson sat down with Vi and Bob Metzler, two early advocates and volunteers at the library who were instrumental in laying the foundations for the thriving library we have today.  Vi and Bob talk about the early days of the library, some of the bigger challenges and what it was like for Vi being one of the first paid librarians at the library.
