Welcome to our District

UCSLD’s mission:

Umatilla County Special Library District’s mission is to ensure the continuation and growth of public libraries in Umatilla County; by supporting our libraries’ ability to provide services, programs and continuing education opportunities for all. We believe libraries strengthen communities through individual, family, economic and community development.

Libraries are integral parts of the infrastructure and critical to the livability and economic development of the region. The District is an essential partner with local governments to ensure the libraries of Umatilla County provide 21st century programs and services to their communities.
