Borrowing & Renewing Materials

Borrowing and Returning During COVID

We are now offering no-contact curbside holds pickup by appointment 10am - 4pm Monday through Saturday. Library staff welcomes you to visit to place holds on the items you would like to borrow.  You will be notified as your materials become available, with instructions for making a curbside pickup appointment.  Please contact the library with any questions at 503-697-6582. 


We are also pleased to announce that effective June 15, Libraries in Clackamas County (LINCC) will resume lending materials between libraries.  It will take some time for all libraries to catch up with processing materials, but we are thrilled to be able to resume this level of operations to fulfill more of your holds. 

LOPL is pleased to announce that we are now in a position to accept the return of library materials!
