Please fill out this form to sign up to use the library. Note: Your child must live within the Laurelhurst neighborhood boundary in Portland, Oregon (or attend Laurelhurst Elementary School) in order to borrow books. Here is a link to check and see if your address is within the boundary.
Once you sign up,we'll then add you as a library patron. You'll then be able to check out books.
You'll receive an email once you've been added as a patron. Then you'll be able to go to the virtual library and place a hold on books. We'll then check the books out and let you know when to pick up. Books are checked out for three months at a time. Feel free to check out as many as you like.
We'll send an email when the books are ready to be picked up. The designated pick up point is near Laurelhurst Elementary (location will be emailed). The books will be available to pick up within a day or two of putting a hold on them. You can keep the books for up to three months. However, if you are finished with them, as a courtesy to other readers, please consider dropping them off once your family is finished with them. No need to email to let us know you'll be dropping the books off, you can simply drop off whenever it's convenient for you. The bin is always outside.
You'll drop off books at the same location as they were picked up.
