Muriel and Allen Van Veen share with us how the idea to start a library in the Cedar Mill area germinated in their house around their fireplace back in the early to mid 70s. They go on to talk about its development in the years afterwards and the committed volunteer effort that made the library possible. This interview is part of a larger project funded by the Oregon Cultural Trust and the Cultural Coalition of Washington County to capture the memories of our three decades of service by digitizing and providing online access to historic photographs, articles, documents and oral histories about the library's founding.
