The North Douglas Library District offers several types of library cards to our patrons: in-district cards, out-of-district cards, student cards, temporary cards, and Oregon Library Passport Program cards. Cards are active for one year and then must be renewed (unless otherwise noted). For all card applications, a photo ID and proof of residency are required.
Anyone over the age of 5 may sign up for a library card; however, patrons under the age of 18 must have a guardian sign for them. Any child under the age of 5 may sign up for free for Dolly Parton's Imagination Library (learn more about this incredible program here). Patrons may only have one type of library card at a time.
In-District cards are free and are available to any resident ages 5+ of the North Douglas School District, business owners in the district, employees & students of the North Douglas School District, and City of Drain, North Douglas Fire District, and Douglas County Sheriff's Office employees and volunteers. These cards are funded by property taxes generated within the district.
Out-of-District cards are $45.00 for individuals, $35.00 for seniors and veterans, and $75.00 for a family of 4 (4 cards, limit of 2 adults and all 4 family members must reside at the same address).
Student cards are free and are available for any school-aged child within the district. Student cards have a maximum checkout capacity of two items.
Temporary cards are valid for 3 months before needing to be renewed and can include access to all library resources OR only digital resources. Temporary cards are free for in-district residents. For out-of-district residents, cards are $12 for individuals, $10 for seniors and veterans, and $20 for a family of 4 (limit of 2 adults and all 4 family members must reside at the same address).
Oregon Library Passport Program cards are valid for 3 months and available to any out-of-district patron whose home library is enrolled in the passport program. Patrons must be in good standing with their home library in order to receive a passport card. Passport cards do not grant digital access. For more information, please visit the Oregon Library Passport Program page.
