The Douglas County Board of Commissioners Wednesday approved an intergovernmental agreement with the Friends of the Canyonville Library, to allow that group to reopen the library and check out books.
Commissioner Gary Leif, the liaison to the libraries, called the development "really good news." He said he had attended meetings in Canyonville, and it looked at first as though nothing was going to happen there. The Friends group came together to form a nonprofit organization and reopen the library.
Leif said every library except for Drain has either reopened or plans to reopen, and some are open more hours per week than they were before.
