Today our server in Tillamook failed. This means that until it is repaired, some of our services will be limited.

First, here's what you can still do at the library:

  • Check-out items via our two self-check machines. If you've never used our self-check machines, staff will be happy to show you how!
  • Use our public Internet terminals. This does not affect our access to the Internet.
  • Browse our physical collection.
  • We can also still find information for you, as long as it's not related to our online catalog.

What we are unable to do:

  • Check items in.
  • Access your library account to update your account or renew your card. Also, we cannot create new accounts.
  • Access our online catalog.
  • Access Library2Go.
  • Renew items.
  • Place or fill holds (including WiFi Hotspots. If you have a Hotspot, please keep it until we're back online: we will not charge your account for it or turn off service.). We also will not be taking patron requests for purchase or Inter-library Loans during this period.

The biggest set back is our ability to check items in. We would like to ask for your help in this. As most of you are aware, Driftwood hasn't charged fines for overdue items in a couple years. We are asking our patrons to refrain from returning items to the library or to either of our bookdrops (downstairs and in Lincoln Beach) until our system is running at full capacity. There will be no repercussions for returning items late, and you can ignore any courtesy notices you reserve via email until we're back up. Once we are up and running again, we will send a follow-up to this email, and also post notices on our website and on our Facebook page.

We really appreciate your help during this period: this will greatly reduce the possibility of mistakes when we come back to full operational capacity, and reduce the backlog for staff and volunteers as well.

If you have any questions or concerns, please call the library's front desk at 541-996-2277, and choose option 1 to speak to library staff member.

Thank you for your understanding and we sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
