Membership dues are $15.00 a year per person and run from May to May. Membership in the organization is different than purchasing a library card. Purchasing a library card gives you full access to the library’s resources, while membership in the organization works much like a traditional “Friends of the Library” group. We hope you choose to do both! 

Our library is unique because it has, since its beginning in 1927, been privately owned.

It is not government owned or tax supported. The library is an Oregon nonprofit corporation owned and operated by its members. 

Patrons enjoy the library’s many services because of our members. Members contribute to all facets of our operations and programs and help make decisions for the organization. This includes electing board members and officers to the board of directors. We rely on our members to get involved – some give time, some give resources, and many give talents. You may be surprised by what you have to offer.

Members are invited to seven brunch meetings per year, held at the library, featuring speakers on topics that are of interest to the community. Members receive a monthly email newsletter, notifications of events and functions, and the annual membership directory. Membership is also a great way to meet new friends and get involved in the community! We encourage you to join even if you live in the area part-time or only visit occasionally. We have members from all over the country. Visitors, part-time residents, and former residents join to show their support for the library community.

“When you become a member, you become an important part of the library, with a voice in its operation, and a role in charting its future.”

Closed Captioning
Closed captioning provides a transcript for the audio track of a video presentation that is synchronized with the video and audio tracks. Captions are generally visually displayed over the video, which benefits people who are deaf and hard of hearing, and anyone who cannot hear the audio due to noisy environments. Most of our website’s video content includes automated captions. Learn how to turn captioning on and off in YouTube.
