About the Library:

The Centralia Timberland Library was built in 1913 with a Carnegie grant obtained by the Ladies of the Roundtable. It was remodeled and expanded in 1977-78 with an Economic Development Grant to accommodate a larger collection and more services than the original 6,200 square foot building.

Features of the building include the chandelier from the old Centralia High School hanging above the main stairway, four fireplaces, and unique folk art from a craftsman who was a patron of the library. The library offers a large meeting room, quiet areas for study, and special areas for children and teens. Centralia has annexed to Timberland for its library services.

Statistics 2015 / Population Estim. 2015:

  • Visits to Library: 214,231
  • Population: 16,790

Screenagers: Growing Up in the Digital Age
Centralia Timberland LibraryTue., Oct. 245:30 PM
Are you watching kids scroll through life, with their rapid-fire thumbs and a six-second attention span? Physician and filmmaker Delaney Ruston saw that with her own kids and learned that the average kid spends 6.5 hours a day looking at screens. She wondered about the impact of all this time and about the friction occurring in homes and schools around negotiating screen time—friction she knew all too well. Join us as we view this exploration of technology and society.
