USING THE LIBRARY
Residents of Crook, Deschutes, and Jefferson counties are eligible for a free library card. Residents of other counties may purchase a card. Children younger than 18 need a parent's or legal guardian's signature on their application and signed permission to use the Internet at the library. The person who signs the card is responsible for all items borrowed on that card.
Please notify library staff immediately if your card is lost or stolen or if your address or phone number changes. There is a $1.00 charge for a replacement card.
Please show your card each time you check out materials.
Most library materials check out for 18 days and can be renewed. Hot Titles check out for 7 days but cannot be renewed.
Library materials may be renewed twice if not on reserve. Hot Titles cannot be renewed.
You may renew online anytime through the library's website, or by phone at (541) 447-7978 during business hours.

When items are 4 weeks overdue, a third overdue notice is sent, a $5.00 restriction fee is added to your card and you will not be able to check out any more items. If you are the adult signer on a juvenile's card, your card and the child's will be restricted when the child has overdue items.
