Welcome, friends!

Welcome to the online “branch” of Josephine Community Library. Thanks to generous grants from Collins Foundation, The Ford Family Foundation, Josephine Community Library Foundation, and Oregon Community 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!



Services during COVID

All four library branches in Grants Pass, Illinois Valley, Williams, and Wolf Creek are offering multiple services while buildings are restricted due to health concerns.

We’ve compiled a list of reliable state and local emergency resource information for people affected by the wildfires that have burned throughout Oregon.

Library cards

Everyone living within our district boundary can get a library card — and a card is all you need to get the most out of your library.

Education and research

Our four branches and website are packed with tools and materials to help you answer questions and develop new skills.
