Word on the Street

The Kenton Library building, originally Cyril S. Kenyon Hardware, was constructed in 1951. The building was expanded to 6,000 square feet for the library, which began serving this North Portland neighborhood in March 2010. The library features a barrel ceiling, and one wall is made of reused wood from the original building. Art glass meeting room doors by artist Marlene Bauer reflect simple observations of community and nature in Portland. Kenton Library offers a space for children and a space for teens.
