North Portland Library creates a new community gallery

With the start of a new year, many people’s thoughts turn toward creating resolutions. Regardless of the resolution, whether it be to join the gym or learn a new language, the goal is the same: a better you and a better life in the new year. Your neighborhood library — it just so happens — is no different. North Portland Library is trying to be a better community library, and our new year's resolution is to make more meaningful connections with our neighbors.

We have created a new community gallery called “N x NE Neighborhood Post,” and our hope is to learn more about the families, history and hidden talents of all our neighbors. You don’t have to be an artist to contribute, express yourself in a creative way: write, craft, DIY. All neighbors are invited to share something that is meaningful to them. Our goal is to start a conversation and hopefully build better relationships with all of you.

See the details below, and we look forward to saying hello soon.

Are you a member of the North/Northeast Portland neighborhood?  Do you have any interesting visual artifacts that you would like to share with your neighbors?  These items might be photographs, paintings, drawings or other two-dimensional items easily hung on a wall.  The North Portland Library is dedicating one of its display panels in the large upstairs meeting room for this purpose.  Please visit or contact the branch to inquire about adding to this display.


If you are an artist with a significant body of work ready to show, we also have a larger exhibit space available for that. Call (503) 988- 5123 to discuss potential options.
