Because the Library is in City Hall, we are working with other City departments to determine safe protocols for reopening fully. We want to ensure that we are following state guidelines in order to help put an end to the spread of the virus and to protect library staff and the public. We will be sharing information about reopening as soon as we have a plan to do so safely.
We are available by phone Monday-Saturday from 10am-5pm at 541-726-3766 and happy to connect you to current services, such as: computer appointments, curbside pickup, personalized picks, reference services, and virtual programs. Or, visit our information on library services page for more information.
