library take out

Only items that are ON HOLD will be distributed through this service. Items can be placed on hold by searching our online catalog, encore.oceanbooks.org, and using the 'Place Hold' button. Patrons may also call the library for assistance with placing or canceling holds, 541-265-2153 or email at reference@newportlibrary.org.

Items will only be distributed during your scheduled appointment time. Please call the library to schedule a time to pick up your holds.


The library takes the safety of our staff and patrons very seriously. In order to limit contact between patrons and library staff, staff participating in Take Out will wear gloves in addition to the cloth face masks worn while working in the building.

Procedure for Take Out with a vehicle:

            • After parking, call the library to tell us you have arrived and to inform staff of the make/model/color of your vehicle.
              • Please open your trunk and wait in your vehicle.
                • Returns may be left in a disposable/recyclable bag in the trunk.
                  • If having a friend pick up for you, let us know. They will need to give your name when they pick up your items.
                    • Please maintain a contact-free exchange. Staff will not be available to chat.
                      • You can make additional requests by phone or email.


Procedure for walk-up Take Out:

  • Call the library to let us know you have arrived.
