The Chemeketa Cooperative Regional Library Service (CCRLS) connects libraries in MarionPolk, and Yamhill counties of OregonThere are currently eighteen libraries in the cooperative, serving nearly 465,000 people. The Cooperative was created in 1973 as a way for public libraries to share information resources.

Changes to 'Basic' Card Type

Beginning July 1, 2016, Chemeketa Cooperative Regional Library Service member libraries will raise limits for the number of items checked out from 1 to 10 for Basic library card holders.  This includes residents of Polk, Yamhill and Marion counties who live within the CCRLS district but outside of public library coverage.  The number of holds allowed will also increase to 10.

Basic cards will remain free, as before. Totals for children using CARE cards will remain the same at 25 checkouts and holds.

Those who have purchased cards that will expire in June will be given an extension until July 1st if they wish to switch to the free Basic card.  Patrons may still purchase full service cards to receive the full allotment of 50 items checked out at a time.  For more information, please contact your home library.
