Our Mission

The mission of the Lebanon Public Library is to encourage life long learning by providing guided and equal access to informational, educational, cultural, and recreational library materials and services in a variety of formats and technologies to meet the needs of the community.

About us

The Lebanon Public Library is a department of the City of Lebanon and is located at 55 Academy Street.

The library collection includes more than 104,000 physical and digital items, with books (including e-books and audio books), reference materials, music CD's, videos, and a wide range of online resources, as well. We offer public access computers for adults and children, free WiFi, programs for all ages, and an inviting place to read, study, or work. All library programs and in-library access to resources are free of charge.

Library services are funded entirely though City of Lebanon property taxes.  Borrowing privileges (library cards) are one of the benefits citizens receive for their property taxes.  Since those living outside the city limits pay don't pay taxes that support the library, they may get a library card for a fee in order to borrow materials and have remote access to online resources.  Click here for more information about library cards.

The Lebanon Public Library is also a member of the Oregon Library Passport Program, which entitles our card-holders to get free Passport library cards with limited borrowing privileges at other member libraries throughout the state.
