The TNT television series "The Librarians" will film in public places throughout Forest Grove for four days next week. Shooting its second season, the series is a spin-off of The Librarian film series, and stars Noah Wyle and Rebecca Romijn. Both are expected to be in Forest Grove for filming. The series is produced by Electric Entertainment.
Forest Grove will be the setting for a fictional town in Washington State. When the episode airs later this season, viewers may recognize some local landmarks. Actors will be filming scenes along Main Street, on Pacific University's campus, inside Theatre in the Grove, and at La Hacienda Ballroom.
Tuesday will be spent at Pacific University's campus, in front of Carnegie Hall and near Old College Hall. The campus won't be closed to students or visitors, but people may be asked to wait to pass through for brief periods while filming takes place.
In a press release, the university noted that "props, including kayaks, a totem pole base and old building replicas may also occupy the west lawn area north of the walkway from College Way to Marsh Hall."
On Wednesday, the crew will be filming along Main Street. That means the Forest Grove Farmers Market booths will move just around the corner to 21st Avenue between College Way and Main Street. Dining tables and chairs will be located at the United Church of Christ's brick courtyard on the corner of 21st Avenue and College Way.
In thanks for accommodating their filming request, Market Coordinator Kaely Summers said the show's producers covered the cost of all vendor booth fees for that day, and made a donation to the nonprofit Adelante Mujeres, which organizes the market.
