[ARCHIVED] Fall and Winter Holiday Hours

Eugene Public Library is open almost every day of the year – and this is the season that brings the most days when we're not! We hope this summary is helpful; please give us a call at 541-682-5450 with any questions.

The Downtown Library, Bethel Branch, Sheldon Branch, and our outside return slots are closed on City of Eugene holidays, starting at closing time the night before.  Our library does not charge late fines, year-round. 

Our Amazon Pool return bins are open every day 24/7; there is no pick up on City holidays.

Looking for some good reading, watching, or listening on days when we're closed? Borrow online.
