Does anybody have any thoughts on the upcoming Multnomah County Library closures? I for one think it is very sad. Libraries are very important for the community. They are temporarily closing 10 libraries in Multnomah county for renovations. I don't know much about it. The central library is on the list.

I think it may be uncomfortable for a while but hopefully, once the renovations are done, we'll have better Library facilities ☺️

I don’t understand. You say libraries are important. But then you’re sad they’re updating them???

Ah. Not so much a ‘temporary renovation, back in a few months’ thing huh.


It's horrible, I'm really sad about it. I hope they actually reopen, and I agree that libraries are crucial for the community. Our houselessness problem will also be a lot worse without free libraries acting as de facto shelters part of the time.

I was really sad to hear about this as well.

Around what year do people get the “time for you to look for other avenues” talk? Is this really a thing that frequently happens? I know a lot believe they will make partner or be kept on as counsel, but I know that’s not realistic so just wondering what year and any thoughts about it. I hear it’s a pretty casual/normal thing.
