The Wasco City/Community Library is an all volunteer library that has been a long time tradition in our little city.  The library is housed in the Old Wasco School at the corner of Barnett and McPherson Streets.  The library is partially funded through the generosity of the City of Wasco.  However, without community support of both time and money, the library could not continue to exist.  Unlike the Gorge LINK libraries, we are not state funded; however, we do work in partnership with them. Books can be ordered from Gorge LINK libraries through the internet and dropped off and picked up at our library as a courier service to the community.  You can even get a Gorge LINK library card from us, but you don’t need it for the Wasco C/C Library books.

Other services available include two public access computers with printer, a copy machine, and WiFi service within 400 ft.  Although there is a small fee for printing and copies to cover expenses, all other services are free of charge. We are a user friendly, self serve library, built upon the trust and co-operation of our borrowers.

Many of our patrons are impressed by the variety and amount of current selections available.  We have something for everyone:

  • Our non- fiction and childrens' sections are in the back room.
  • For our pre-readers we have board books, videos and DVDs including Baby Einstein and First Words Signing.
  • Toddlers and preschoolers will enjoy our picture books and Early Reading and Steps to Reading series.
  • Kids love animal books and how-to books of arts, science, and crafts.
  • For the family, we have parenting books and family films.
  • In our Oregon section, we have renowned authors such as Rick Steber, Craig Lesley and our own Jane Kirkpatrick.  We also have state and county history books, including Sherman County’s “For the Record” donated by the Historical Society.
  • The sports section includes outdoor activities, hunting, fishing and wildlife, as well as books for team sports.
  • We have an extensive collection of books on creative art forms for all kinds of hobbyists including knitting and quilting.
