Notice of WiFi Changes

Unfortunately, due to the abuse of the library’s free Wifi to illegally download copyrighted materials, we will no longer be posting the password or login procedure on the outside of the library, or provide it over the phone.

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

Last WIFI password change: Tuesday, 1-31-2023


Library Free Item List & Exchange

Last Call - FREE PCs! (3 Remaining) - We currently have 3 PC desktop computers available for free. Limit one per patron. They have no HDDs or cords, but all were working when removed from service. They are AS-IS. Please see your librarian for information!


We look forward to seeing you the NEXT Thursday, January 26th, 2023 at 10:00 AM!

The Library now has a Purple Air air quality monitoring device. If you’d like to see the AQI at the library, you can go to for a map view of the purple air monitors in our area!


Thanks in large part to a generous grant from La Grande Community Library Foundation, the Elgin Public Library is proud to announce our Technology Improvement program!
