With the uptick in COVID-19 cases in the county and with all other village buildings closed, the Library Board has made the difficult decision to keep the library building closed to the public for now. This decision was not made lightly and will be revisited again soon.
We know how important the library is to our community. While we are not able to open our building, we are still doing our best to serve you!
No appointment needed! If you have items waiting for you on our holds shelf you may pick them up during these times without an appointment.
- Mondays, Tuesdays, & Wednesdays from 11:30am - 7:30pm
- Thursdays & Fridays from 8:30am -3:30pm
- Saturdays from 9:00am -2:30pm

The Library Board is seeking applications to fill one (1) position on the Library Building Committee. The application deadline is Monday, February 8, 2021 at 5:00 PM. This is an important opportunity to be involved in the planning for the new Oregon Public Library. This position is available due to a member relocating outside the community.
Applicants living anywhere in the library's service area will be considered. This includes, but is not limited to, residents of the Village of Oregon, Town of Oregon, Town of Dunn, Town of Rutland, Village of Brooklyn, or Town of Brooklyn.
New library plans have been developed to the conceptual level and then architectural design was put on pause to allow for fundraising. While the building committee did not meet in 2020, meetings were typically held twice a month on Tuesdays at 5:30 PM and lasted 1.5-2.5 hours. The committee is anticipated to begin meeting again in Spring 2021 and may meet via Zoom temporarily.
Please complete the Application for Appointment to the Library Building Committee (PDF) and provide a one-page letter sharing your interest in the position.
Application materials can be returned to the Oregon Public LIbrary via curbside pickup or emailed to Library Director Jennifer Endres Way at email@example.com. Contact Jennifer Way at 608-835-2322 with questions.
