How do I return or renew items?

 ​​Renew items

You can renew items three times if no one else has them on hold.

There are four ways to renew items.

To log in, click My Account, type in your barcode on the back of your library card, and then input your 4-digit PIN. You will see a list of items currently checked out to you. Click "Renew all" or check the boxes before the items you want to renew, then click "Renew selected." 

Return items

You can visit the library to return items at the front desk or the book drops during our opening hours. After hours, you can use the book drop behind the library to return items.


The Library no longer charges fines for overdue items; we charge a fee for replacing lost or damaged items.

We cannot accept online payments now. You can send us a check, visit JCLD in person, or call us with your debit/credit card information. We also accept cash at the library. 

If you believe you have returned items that still appear on your account or have an unpaid balance and cannot pay it right now, please call (541.475.3351) or stop by the library to discuss your options.

When does my overdue item go to collections?

Charges for replacement items appear on your account after a two-week grace period based on the item's due date. We calculate the replacement fee by determining the cost of the missing or damaged item. The replacement fee is cleared from your account when you return the long overdue item. We do not waive fees for damaged items.

Once you owe $50.00 or more, a $10.00 collection fee is added to your account. Your account is frozen, and you can only check out new materials after you pay the outstanding fees.  

To receive credit for returning an undamaged, long overdue item, please give it to the front desk staff; you are still responsible for the $10 collection fee.

You may resume checking out materials once we have resolved your unpaid fees.
