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. If you are expecting an item and haven't received notification, call us to confirm contact information.


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:

            • Please wear a face covering when using Library Take Out.
            • If you are able, please approach the Staff Door (adjacent to top parking lot) and ring the door bell. Please maintain a distance of at least six feet from other people. Library staff will collect your holds, check them out, and bring them to the door. This may take several minutes. If you are unable to make it to the door, park in the top lot and call the library to tell us you have arrived-- 541-265-2153.
                • We can accept returns in a disposable/recyclable bag. 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 24 hours 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.
