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.
Property owners outside of the district library boundary can apply to join the district. Library staff is available to assist. Please contact us for more information.
All residents of Josephine County age 17 and younger are eligible to receive a library card, paid for through a scholarship program from the Josephine Community Library Foundation.
Adults who don’t live in the library district can get a card for $60 per year or $15 for three months, per household. (The cost is approximately equal to the amount that each in-district household pays through taxes.)
