Oregon Library Passport Program

What is the Oregon Library Passport Program?


The Oregon Library Passport Program is a pilot exchange program that allows residents of participating library systems across the state to use their “home” library card to apply for a library card at other participating libraries in Oregon that they would not otherwise be eligible to use. Terms of use for this program are established by each participating library, and materials must be checked out and returned at that library (or library system).
