Public Library Website

Minimum Condition: Provide a website that enables local library users to access State Library of Oregon resources and services available to all Oregon residents

  • Contact information
  • Access to online catalog
  • Upcoming library events
  • Special announcements (closures, etc.)

For information on including "State Library of Oregon resources and services" on the library provided website, please visit the section on Statewide Databases.
