It is the policy of the C. Giles Hunt Sutherlin Public Library to issue a library card to any resident of Douglas County. Cards may be obtained in person or by requesting one electronically.  Visit the book catalog page from this webpage and look to the upper right hand page corner. Our in-person and digital library services are made possible, without charge, by generous donations from our awesome card holders, the Sutherlin Friends of the Library, the Sutherlin Library Foundation, the City of Sutherlin, and grants from foundations believing in the crucial importance of literacy. Visitors are always welcome.

We are limited to 20 patrons at a time and have three public computers available. We will follow physical distancing protocol as our health authority recommends. Because returning materials have been and will be disinfected and “quarantined” for a number of days, a limit of five items is now in place.

Public and children’s programs remain suspended for now and parents and others responsible for children will be required to closely monitor them at all times. As requirements change, we will provide more information about additions of programs and times. Please note the many new postings regarding our current operating requirements when visiting the library.
