The Hoffman Center held a special meeting Apr. 23 to solicit ideas about the center in the wake of a decision to close down their studio building. The building was shuttered due to concerns about its safety.
“There was a strong desire that we not sell the studio building lot, but retain it for a future structure that would be compatible with and complimentary to the library,” said Center president David Dillon. “People felt that is what Lloyd and Myrtle Hoffman envisioned when they left their property and assets to the community.”
“The building, located at 595 Laneda Ave, will still be torn down – and soon,” Dillon added.
A group of attendees volunteered to form a Mortgage Retirement Committee to address paying down the mortgage on the Center’s main building, located at 594 Laneda Ave.
Another group offered to form an Advisory Committee to take a long-term view of the Center and its future. That would include what and when to build on the soon-to-be vacant studio building land.
“It was a good idea to bring in so many people with good ideas,” said Dillon. “Having cultural activities, including the library on both sides of Laneda, the intersection would be the cultural hub of north Tillamook County and a more beautiful entry into Manzanita.”
The Hoffman Center Reference Library collection is now online for you to browse from your computer. For directions on how to logon click here.
At this time special arrangements need to be made to visit the library, but with enough interest we may have open hours on a regular basis. Studio artists in the Hoffman house may use the library at any time.
Books are tagged and are searchable by categories, including Art Education, Art History, Drawing, Sculpture, Painting, Ethnic Art, Graphic Arts, Printmaking, etc.
Remember that this is a Reference Library, not a Lending Library, so books may be used in the library or in the foyer of the Hoffman house, but must be returned to the shelf when you are finished with them.
