McMinnville Public Library
Oregon Library Passport Program Policy
The Oregon Library Passport Program will allow card-holders from participating libraries to register and use other participating libraries across the state. The McMinnville Public Library will participate in the Oregon Library Passport Program, available for all McMinnville patrons with a “resident”, “full service fee”, or “taxpayer” card.
In order for a person from McMinnville to participate in the program they must first get an Oregon Library Passport sticker available at the circulation desk. Only McMinnville patrons with a “resident”, “full service fee” or “taxpayer” card can get a sticker to participate in the program.
Basic cardholders cannot participate, due to the discrepancy in the taxes that they pay to the library. This was a decision made by library directors of CCRLS.
If a person from a city other than McMinnville inquires about the Oregon Library Passport Program they can inquire at the circulation desk about a CCRLS Passport card. They must be a card holder of a participating library in order to get a CCRLS Passport card. A list of participating libraries is at http://www.librariesoforegon.org/node/30. All materials checked out at a CCRLS location MUST be returned to a CCRLS location.
Sheila McAlexander is the McMinnville Public Library contact for questions from patrons and staff from other libraries regarding the Passport program. Circulation staff will manage the intake of new patrons and the Passport stickers for full service McMinnville patrons.
