Central Library

Perhaps the city's most beloved building, Multnomah County Central Library is not only a gorgeous work of early 20th century Georgian style by Portland's most acclaimed architect of the time but also a vital resource for a cross-section of citizens today. Our first interview features Philip Niles, author of Beauty of the City, the definitive biography of Central Library architect A.E. Doyle, who also designed a host of Portland landmarks. The second interview features Central Library manager Angela Weyrens, whose team serves hundreds of patrons every day.
