Welcome, friends!

Welcome to the online “branch” of Josephine Community Library. Thanks to generous grants from Oregon Community Foundation and Josephine Community Library Foundation, we’ve updated our website to make it easier to find everything you need. From Spanish translation to instant online library cards, library services are more accessible than ever before. Enjoy!
