Hours and Locations

Temporary Library Hours

  1. Updated October 8, 2020

    Currently, each Eugene Public Library building is open for limited hours and specific uses. This temporary schedule is designed to allow safe access to high-priority services, with a focus on meeting the needs of community members who do not have online access. Not all locations offer all services. Some services are not available right now including browsing the shelves or staying at the library to sit and read.

    Please view 
    Current Library Services to learn which services are available and when, where and how to access them. Thank you!
