Dallas Public Library

The Dallas Public Library is a member of the Chemeketa Cooperative Regional Library
Service (CCRLS). With this association, library patrons have access to approximately one million items through the Chemeketa Cooperative Regional Library Service, which is comprised of 17 libraries located in Polk, Marion, and Yamhill counties.

If you do not have a library card, you can register for one online and have access to our ebooks and audiobooks. Cards will be active for 90 days(instead of the customary 30 days). When your home library opens, bring in your picture ID and proof of current address to verify your information and you'll be able to check out other library materials.

The Dallas Public Library will be offering curbside pickup for holds 5 days a week! At this time you can only place holds on books, DVD’s, and audiobooks that are here at the Dallas Public Library. Because we are operating with limited staff, we are unable to place holds for you by phone. We are asking for you to place holds through https://catalog.ccrls.org/. You can place holds at the Dallas Library by following the tutorial provided in the image. Before coming to the library, please check the status of your holds and make sure your hold says “Available”.   

How To Place Holds

Holds may be picked Monday through Friday between 10 am and 2 pm at the parking lot door of the library. The process is easy but for pickup you must have a library card for everyone that has holds available in order to check out.  A staff member will be at the door with gloves and a mask. They will have a tray for you to place your library card on. We ask that you place the card with the barcode up.  This helps us scan your card without touching it. We will return your card on the tray. You will need to open your trunk for us, either from inside or by getting out, opening the trunk, and getting back into your vehicle. We will bring out your holds and place them in your trunk, closing the trunk for you.

You can check the status of your holds that you placed. Here are some examples of what your account might look like depending on your hold status.

    Library Hours
The library will be closing to the public effective Monday March 16 until further notice. The decision to reopen or extend the closure will be made as new information is received. All library material dates are being automatically extended and all returned library materials checked in “FINE FREE.” Holds are being set to not expire on the shelf so they will not be removed if not picked up during the closure. They will still be here when we reopen. We are sorry for the inconvenience but we are doing our best to limit the public’s exposure to COVID – 19.
