"Go through your phone book, call people and ask them to drive you to the airport. The ones who will drive you are your true friends. The rest aren't bad people; they're just acquaintances."

Cedar Mill Libraries proudly support our local Oregon Battle of the Books participants!

Oregon Battle of the Books is a statewide reading program sponsored by the Oregon Association of School Libraries.  OBOB celebrates a love of reading and supports good sportsmanship while motivating young people to broaden their reading experience and increase their reading comprehension.  Reader teams in 3rd through 12th grades compete in local and regional battles before moving on to the state tournament in March.
