Due to the Governor's designation of Polk County as extreme risk, starting Thursday, December 3rd, the library building will be closed to the public. **We will still be offering curbside during library hours and our book drops will be open.**  Holds can be placed at https://catalog.ccrls.org/client/en_US/dal.  When you receive a notice that your hold(s) are available, pull up to the curb at our back door (on Jefferson Street) and call the number on the  book drop. We will come out for your library card and bring your items to you!  If you have trouble placing holds yourself, call us at 503-623-2633 and we can help you.

Kids, Teens, and Adults are welcome to sign up for our Winter Reading Program! Participants log reading time for points to be used in a prize raffle at the end of the program. Sign up and track your reading here: http://dallaslibraryoregon.readsquared.com/

We will be opening back up as soon as we can. Watch our Facebook page for updates.

Some of our library activities are still continuing (Zoom Book Discussions and Storytime will go on as scheduled)!

The Dallas Public Library is offering curbside pickup of available holds. When you arrive at the parking lot doors to pick up holds, please call us at 503.831.3547. If you do not have a cell phone, please call us just before you leave for the library. Staff will ask for your name and you will need your library card in order to check out. Curbside pick is available Monday to Friday from 10 am to 5 pm and Saturdays from 10 am to 2 pm. Please note, curbside pickup is subject to change. 

The process is easy but for pickup you must have a library card for everyone that has holds available in order to check out.  A staff member will be at the door with gloves and a mask. They will have a tray for you to place your library card on. We ask that you place the card with the barcode up.  This helps us scan your card without touching it. We will return your card on the tray. You will need to open your trunk for us, either from inside or by getting out, opening the trunk, and getting back into your vehicle. We will bring out your holds and place them in your trunk, closing the trunk for you.

You can place Holds on Books, DVD's, Audiobooks, and Magazines at https://catalog.ccrls.org/client/en_US/dal. The following image shows how to search for items on the CCRLS catalog site. 

How to Place Hold

You can check the status of your holds that you placed. Here are some examples of what your account might look like depending on your hold status.

Status of Holds

If you do not have a library card, you can register for one online and have access to our ebooks and audiobooks. Cards will be active for 90 days(instead of the customary 30 days). When your home library opens, bring in your picture ID and proof of current address to verify your information and you'll be able to check out other library materials.
