Library Resources for Adults

Adult Events and Classes

Beaverton City Library offers a wide range of services and materials for adults of all ages. We seek to offer lifelong learning and recreational support and meet the need for general information topics, as well as support the pursuit of personal interests for enjoyment including hobbies and entertainment.

We offer materials in a variety of formats, including DVDs and Blu-Ray, CDs, and of course, print books! We have a collection of books for non English readers as well as materials for those learning to read and speak English. Downloadable eBooks and audiobooks are provided through OverDrive.
