The Cedar Mill Community Library Association (CMCLA) was incorporated in Oregon in 1974 for the purpose of providing library service to the Cedar Mill community. Organized as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit membership association, CMCLA is the entity that that governs and operates the library. Membership is open to any individual or family that supports the library’s mission and makes an annual monetary donation.
The CMCLA operates the Cedar Mill and Bethany Libraries as well as the Second Edition Resale Shop and Book Sale. The CMCLA publishes a regular newsletter available in print and through e-mail.
The 11 member CMCLA Board of Directors are elected by Library Association members. Board members serve 3-year terms and typically meet on the 3rd Tuesday of each month at 7:00 pm. Meetings are open to the public and there are opportunities to serve on board committees such as Finance, Community Relations, Development and Second Edition.
