                                     Changes to Basic Cards!

                                                 Beginning July 1, 2016, Chemeketa Cooperative Regional Library Service member libraries will raise limits for the number of items checked out from 1 to 10 for Basic                                                    library card holders. This includes residents of Polk, Yamhill, and Marion counties, and a small portion of Linn County, who live within the CCRLS district but outside of                                                         public  library coverage. The number of holds allowed will also increase to 10.

                                                 Basic cards will remain free, as before. Totals for children using CARE cards will remain the same at 25 checkouts. Patrons may still purchase full service cards to                                                     receive the full allotment of 50 items checked out at a time. For more information, please contact the Lyons Public Library.
