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...
