A Josephine Community Library card is all you need to enjoy our entire collection of materials, online resources, activities, programs, and services.
Who can get a library card?
Library cards for residents who live within the district boundary are paid for through property taxes. No additional fee is required.
Households that are not in the library district can get a card for $60 per year or $15 for three months. The cost is approximately equal to the amount that each in-district household pays through taxes.
Youth and adults who do not live in the library district boundary, but reside in Josephine County, are eligible for an annual household library card sponsored by Josephine Community Library Foundation. Ask a volunteer or library staff about this option during your next visit.
Property annexation to join the library district is available to all homeowners. Please call or visit any branch to begin the annexation process.
- All individuals listed on property deed must sign annexation documents.
- Properties held in trust may be annexed with signatures of all trustees.
- Annexing into the district does not annex property into city services or change any other property tax obligations.
- Annexed properties remain in the library district when sold, providing sustainable funding for libraries in Josephine County.
