If you live in Marion, Polk, or Yamhill Counties (Oregon), you can use the Chemeketa Cooperative Regional Library System. In addition to the books in the Chemeketa College Library, the catalog also contains the collections of the 17 public libraries located in the regional library district. You can return our books to any public library in the CCRLS system.
To check out books from a CCRLS library you need a Chemeketa student I.D. card or a CCRLS public library card. Please contact the Bookstore in Building 1 for a student I.D. card. Bring your new ID to the library, next door in Building 9, so that we can enter your barcode into the system. After that, you will be able to use your I.D. card as a library card.
If the book you want is at another library in the system, it can be sent to one convenient for you.
To search in all libraries in the system at the same time, make sure that you choose "All CCRLS libraries" from the menu of library names.
Instructions for using the catalog and for requesting material are to be found on the Chemeketa Community College Library catalog page.
