Podcasts at Cedar Mill

Cedar Mill Community Library is excited to provide audio podcasts for and about our community. Subscribe via RSS to hear when new episodes are available. We have a variety of audio programs that you can access through this website:

  • 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...

Stories Through Indian Eyes by Tim Tingle

Tim Tingle is a well known storyteller and author from Texas who is a member of the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma.  He visited the Cedar Mill Library on April 13th, 2012 to relate stories about growing up with his family.  Learn what "Salty Pie" means to Tim and his family along with other humorous and poignant vignettes about his grandma, his aunt, his father and other members of his family. He spends a few minutes at the start discussing the controversial novel, The Education of Little Tree.  If you want to jump straight to the storytelling, go to the 7:35 mark. Tim's performance was part of the Washington County Cooperative Library Services' 2012 Hearing Voices Festival.
