Yachats Public Library
By Janet Rackleff

Mark your calendars for the best book sale in Yachats.  On Friday March 27 and Saturday March 28 the Friends of the Library will be holding their annual book sale.

         This year we've had generous donations and will be offering an abundance of books for incredibly low prices. Hard backs are $1.00, paperbacks are $0.50 and DVDs and audio books are $1.00.  VHS tapes will be sold 10 for $1.00.  Saturday will be bag day.  The price for a bag of books will be $4.00 which includes the price of the printed Yachats Library bag. The sale starts at 10 am each day and closes at 4pm.

            We can use help moving the books from the library to the Commons where the sale will take place on Thursday March 26th.  If you have a truck or a strong back to help load books, come to the library at noon.  If you can help setting books out on the tables in the Commons multipurpose room, come at 2pm to Commons room 8.

             For those of you, who might have books to donate, please drop them off at the library early in March so they be sorted and added to the sale.

            And if you are interested in your family genealogy don't forget that Bob Barber can offer help with your research at the library.  Give him a call at 541-547-4862 or email Bob at rlbarber715@gmail.com to set up an appointment for genealogy assistance.

See you at the library and March Book Sale!



The Yachats Library has joined other libraries around the state in a new program called the Oregon Library Passport Program.  This program will allow Yachats library cardholders to have access, without charge, to other participating libraries across the state.  Newport, Waldport and Florence are part of this program.  Materials borrowed from participating libraries must be returned to that library.  Learn more at www.librariesoforegon.org/passport or stop by the library for more information. 


We are pleased to announce we again have 4 functioning patron computers!  The two new ones are running Window 8.  We know many of you will be happy to hear that all computers have WORD installed.    The new printer/copier also has scanning capabilities, another function patrons have been requesting.  The touch screens on the Windows 8 computers are fun to use.  Come give it a try!  We will be glad to help you if you are new to touch screens.


The Yachats Public Library was established by Ordinance 36 in November 1973 stating "The City of Yachats does hereby establish a public library to be known as the 'Yachats Public Library' to be operated and funded by the said city and to be used for the educational and cultural benefit by the citizens of the said city in accordance with the rules and regulations of the said library."
