Help the library get donations from the Fred Meyer Community Rewards program.

Fred Meyer is donating $2.5 million per year to non-profits in Alaska, Idaho, Oregon and Washington, based on where their customers tell them to give. Here’s how the program works:

Sign up for the Community Rewards program by linking your Fred Meyer Rewards Card to Garden Home Library with this link.
You can search for us by our name or by our non-profit number (87017).
Then, every time you shop and use your Rewards Card, you are helping the library earn a donation! You still earn your Rewards Points, Fuel Points, and Rebates. If you do not have a Rewards Card, they are available at the Customer Service desk of any Fred Meyer store. For more information, please visit this link.

At this time the library will be using your Fred Meyers donations to fund our effort to replace the old public computers in the library.

Garden Home Library History

The Garden Home Community Library began in 1983 when Tualatin Hills Park and Recreation District took over a closed elementary school and made space available to local volunteers to organize and operate a library. The initial collection was focused on books for preschool children.

In July of 1996 Garden Home became the twelfth public library in the Washington County Cooperative Library Services (WCCLS). A 2004 expansion doubled the library space to 1,860 square feet.
