Got holds ready to be picked up? Need help placing a hold? Call the library at 503-838-1932 Tuesdays through Fridays 10:00 am to 2:00 pm to schedule an appointment to pick up your available holds or to have staff help you place holds on library items.

New Books List!
We have been having some issues posting information on our Facebook page and have not posted our New Books List since August. We will now be posting this list right here on our website, where you will have access to past lists as well. We have started with our most current list of new books and will work backward to create and post the lists that we have been unable to post. The list includes a thumbnail picture of the book cover and is linked to our catalog, to help you find and place holds on our new materials. Occasionally the link goes directly to the title. Sometimes you may have to scroll the page to find the format you want.

If you need assistance in placing holds on library materials please call us Tuesdays - Fridays, 10:00 am - 2:00 pm at 503-838-1932 and we will gladly help you.  

Happy Reading!
