NEW Take Out Hours, No Appointment Needed!

library take out

Only items that are ON HOLD will be distributed through this service. Items can be placed on hold by searching our online catalog, encore.oceanbooks.org, and using the 'Place Hold' button. Patrons may also call the library for assistance with placing or canceling holds, 541-265-2153 or email at reference@newportlibrary.org.

Please wait until you receive notification that your holds are ready to pick up before coming to the library


The library takes the safety of our staff and patrons very seriously. In order to limit contact between patrons and library staff, staff participating in Take Out will wear gloves in addition to the cloth face masks worn while working in the building.

Procedure for Take Out with a vehicle:

            • After parking in the top lot, call the library to tell us you have arrived-- 541-265-2153. Library staff will collect your holds, check them out, and bring them to your vehicle. This may take several minutes.
              • Please open your trunk and wait in your vehicle.
                • Returns may be left in a disposable/recyclable bag in the trunk. If items aren't in a bag, patrons can use the book return slot that is located on the east side of the building.
                  • Returns stay in quarantine for a full week before they are checked in. Therefore, returned items will remain on your account during this period.
                  • If having a friend pick up for you, let us know. They will need to give your name when they pick up your items.
                    • Please maintain a contact-free exchange. Staff will not be available to chat.
                      • You can make additional requests by phone or email.


Procedure for walk-up Take Out:

  • Call the library to let us know you have arrived. Staff will check out your items. This may take several minutes.
  • Patrons without cell phones should knock on the door on the North side of the Library building that says "Staff Entrance". After knocking, immediately step back to 10 ft.
