Library Happenings in 2024!



Notice: Valued patrons. The Elgin Public Library has our hours of operation posted here (Near the bottom of this page), as well as on the front of our library in multiple places. Please be aware that the library does not open earlier than listed, nor do we stay open after hours.

Please do not bang on windows or shake/pound on the library doors; if such actions cause damage, the camera footage will be forwarded to both city hall and the Union County Sheriff’s office.

-> Offensive Littering & Unsolicited Donations (ORS 164.805)

Valued Patrons:

Although we greatly appreciate the generosity of our wonderful local community, the Elgin public library is NOT accepting donations at this time.

We ask that you do NOT leave any material, including books, magazines, or media on public library property, and remind that doing so is a crime of offensive littering (ORS 164.805).

As the number of incidents has continued to increase over the last few months, we have been forced to begin informing law enforcement and are now preparing to submit video footage (including vehicles and license plate information) to support citations if this continues happening.

We will post here and on our facebook page when and if we begin taking donations again, but we will require specific pre-approval for donations.

Thank you for your understanding and support.



Roll the Dice!

Starting early in the spring of 2024, the Elgin Public Library will have sets of poylhedral dice available for purchase! Come in and pick out a set… $8.00 per set for normal sets, and $10.00 a set for extended or fancy sets…


Grant Awards and Thanks

\ Thanks to a gracious funding grant by the Libraries of Union County Foundation, we have been able to purchase a new color laser printer!

\ This incredibly generous grant also enabled us to get a much-needed new router, UPS units, and a wireless handheld scanner to make checking in and out books easier during events and during library maintenance as well!

If you’d like to access the library’s wireless services, please come in, in person to get the current password.
