Many ENCORE members are aware of the Community College Library privileges available to them through their ENCORE buy ventolin online membership. Each ENCORE membership card has a student I.D. number that entitles the bearer to full Clatsop Community College Library privileges.
But did you know that your library card also is good at numerous other libraries in the United States? The Clatsop Community College library is part of the Oregon Library Passport Program that began in 2013. The nearest participating library is the Astor Public Library in Astoria.
I stopped in to have a chat with Rhonda at the Clatsop Community College Library recently. She showed me how the library is connected to six additional coastal libraries through the library website, and also told me about the Library Passport Program. With a photo I.D. (in this case my driver’s license) and my current ENCORE membership card (or student I.D.) as proof of qualification, Rhonda issued me a Clatsop Community College Library Passport. Rhonda also provided information about the library hours and demonstrated the use of the library website for additional information to reserve items, check on availability, or extend a due date. By taking my Clatsop Community College Library Passport to any library participating in the Oregon Library Passport Program, that library will issue me a Library Passport for their library free of charge.
Your student library privilege at the college library also allows you to utilize the nationwide “Inter-Library Loan” system. Check it out by visiting:www.librariesoforegon.org/passport for more information and the lists of participating libraries, or stop in and get your questions answered by Rhonda or the other helpful members of the Clatsop Community College Library staff.
All FREE for ENCORE members!
