Last month, Multnomah County voters approved $387 million in bonds for library construction and improvements. We are urging Multnomah County commissioners to commit to constructing a fossil-free library using clean energy to avoid locking in pollution for generations to come.
Libraries are vital community resources, landmarks, and gathering places. Let’s ensure they reflect our community’s values for investing in our future—not just through education, but also in clean air and a safe climate.

VICTORY! On Thursday, April 15th, 2021, Multnomah County Commissioners voted unanimously to enact a resolution that requires all new county-owned buildings to be constructed with 100% clean and fossil-free energy.
Multnomah County has already committed to meeting 100% of its community-wide energy needs with renewable energy by 2050. To meet this climate action commitment, new libraries and all public buildings in the County should be built fossil-free from the start to avoid costly retrofits later. Please let your Multnomah County commissioners know that you support this investment in our future by building the next library fossil-free and powered by clean energy.
