Past WCCLS-affiliated libraries included ones in the former Tanasbourne Mall (when the Tanasbourne area was unincorporated) and, in the 1970s, Aloha Park Library, located in Aloha Park school, which was open to the public one night a week.[2]
In 2019, the Oregon College of Art & Craft Library closed along with the rest of the college.[6] Additionally, the Tuality Health Resource Center closed in August.[7] These specialty libraries had been affiliated with WCCLS for many years, and some of their collection was distributed to other libraries in the county.[8]
