Reserve Items and Borrow Materials from Other Libraries
Tigard Library patrons can access most of the books and materials in all Washington County Public Libraries because it is a member of Washington County Cooperative Library Services (WCCLS). The online library catalog lists all materials at member libraries. Most of these items can be reserved by Tigard Library cardholders.

Patrons may request items from another WCCLS library. At times there is a waiting list for popular titles. You may place a hold online from home, at the Public Access terminals in the Library, over the phone or at the Reference Desk.

Reserved items may be picked up at any WCCLS library. When they arrive at the library, patrons will be notified by e-mail or phone. Items will be held for seven days. Patrons may pick up reserved books themselves from the Self-Holds shelf on the first floor. Reserved audio-visual items are kept behind the checkout desk.

In order to pick up reserved items, patrons must bring the card or card number of the person who placed the hold, even if it is a family member. When using a card number only, patrons must be able to verify registration information for security purposes.

If you do not find the item you are looking for in the WCCLS system, you can make a request through interlibrary loan or suggest a purchase.

Fines
Materials are due back on the date printed on the receipt. Materials that are not returned by their due date will accrue fines at the following rates:

  • DVDs, Blu-Rays and eReaders - $1 per day per item
  • Other Materials - 15 per day per item
  • If account has more than $10 in fines, patrons will not be allowed to check out additional items until fines are reduced. There is no grace period. Fines start to accumulate on the first day past due. Materials may be renewed to prevent additional fines only if the items are renewable. The library will accept cash, checks, debit or credit cards for payment.
