Do River Road and Santa Clara residents have access to a library?

City residents (with proof of residence) can get a Eugene library card at no cost by visiting any City of Eugene public library location. The closest library for many residents is the Bethel Branch Library. County residents are also able to get a card to Eugene public libraries but must pay a fee. As of July 2021, the fee is $11/month per household. Residents and non-residents pay approximately the same amount, one through taxes and the other through the non-resident fee. Both City and County residents can attend events and classes at the Eugene public libraries, regardless of whether they hold a library card. For more information, visit the City of Eugene Library website. Additionally, both City and County residents are welcome to check out books at the River Road-Santa Clara Volunteer Library.

One of the Neighborhood Plan policies captures the community’s desire to have library and cultural services in the River Road and Santa Clara neighborhoods.
