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.

We are excited to announce the Dallas Public Library is open with limited services and temporary COVID-19 measures. Curbside pickup of holds is available during our open hours.
Yes, We Are Open

Before you come to the library please note we have changed how you enter the library; the library will be accessible from the parking lot back doors on Jefferson St. The doors on Main St. will not be open for entering the library. The safety of our patrons and staff is of highest importance for the library. Please follow us on Facebook and check our website for updates. We appreciate your understanding during this time and thank you for your patience!

The Dallas Public Library is offering curbside pickup of available holds. When you arrive at the parking lot doors to pick up holds, please call us at 503.831.3547. If you do not have a cell phone, please call us just before you leave for the library. Staff will ask for your name and you will need your library card in order to check out. Curbside pick is available Monday to Friday from 10 am to 5 pm and Saturdays from 10 am to 2 pm. Please note, curbside pickup is subject to change.

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.

Status of Holds

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.
