ROSEBURG, Ore. – The Roseburg Public Library is celebrating their one-year anniversary Thursday night.

In 2016, Douglas County residents voted against a tax levy that would have kept the Douglas County library system open, effectively closing the library building in Roseburg months later.

Then, the City of Roseburg took over the library and reopened it in December 2018.

Since they reopened, library staff said they’ve had more than 100,000 visitors and an average of 400 visitors a month. They said this growth is a representation of how much the community cares about the library.

“I think by celebrating this milestone, we’re really telling the citizens of Roseburg and the folks outside of the community that the Roseburg library is here to stay,” said Eric Johnson, the communications specialist for the City of Roseburg.

The celebration will be from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Thursday night in the library, 1409 NE Diamond Lake Boulevard.

There will be refreshments, live music and a video conference from a best-selling author.
