Lane County Libraries

Lane County has five municipal libraries and three library districts.  Beginning July 1, 2012, the public libraries in Junction City, Springfield, Creswell, Cottage Grove, Veneta, Florence, Mapleton and Oakridge have agreed to a system, whereby a library card from a participating library will be honored in the other libraries.  Eugene Public Library does not honor cards from these libraries.

Out of town cards
Since there are plenty of people who need to use a library and who do not live in town, it is possible to get an out of town library card.  The library charges $50 for a household for one year, or $40 for households with a member age 60 or better.  The fee was calculated based on what a typical household would pay in property taxes per year.
