Your Library Card

Getting a card, renewing materials, placing holds, etc.

Who can get a card
People who live inside the city limits of Junction City pay property taxes that support the library.  They may have a library card.

People who live outside of the city limits do not pay property taxes that support the library.  A fee of $50 per year per household is charged.  The fee is $40, if a household has one member who is age 60 or more.

How to Get Your Card
Bring a current Oregon Driver's License or another official document with a Junction City address to the library. 

Fill out a library card application form.  A card is issued on the spot.

Out of town card holders must pay $50/family/year, or $40 if a family member is over 60.

Cards will not be issued to people who live more than 20 miles from Junction City.

Borrowing Limits

New fiction may be borrowed for 14 days.

Videos and dvds may be borrowed for 7 days.

Renewing Your Borrowed Items
Follow the instructions under the "My Account" button.  Again, you will need your library card number and PIN.
