The Library has many recently published and popular novels, including graphic novels, inspirational fiction, large print books, and a non-fiction section. We have young adult books and a children’s area with books, movies, and early-literacy workstations. We are expanding our selection of books in Spanish for adults, young adults, and children. We also have DVDs, and audio books on CD.
All materials are available for check out for a period of three (3) weeks. Adults can check out up to 10 items at a time, children can check out 30. Renewals may be made in person at the library or by calling (503) 390-2370.
A Keizer Community Library card opens the door to a world of information and entertainment: books, audio books, movies, computers, plus more.
Receive a Library Card at the service desk, or through our online catalog.
Kids library cards are available to any child, ages 1 day to 13 years. Youth 14 and over may apply for an adult card. An adult must apply for a library card in their name before a kids card can issued. The kids card will be associated with the adult as the responsible person.
Computers and Internet Access
The library has four computers, with Microsoft Word/Excel and internet access. Computer stations are available for use on a first-come first-served basis, and requires sign-in at the Service Desk.
Free Wi-Fi (wireless) access is available at all times.
The Library has two early literacy workstations for children to promote school readiness. Especially for the very young ones, it’s a good introduction for what they’re going to encounter in school, how do I use a keyboard, how does the mouse work, how does the mouse interact with what I’m seeing on the computer screen. Kids gravitate to those stations immediately. They’re easy for kids to use; they don’t need a lot of instruction, and kids can do it independently. All children love the wide variety of games available, whether they’re in fifth grade or in kindergarten. It’s important that the workstations are not connected to the internet, so children aren’t going anywhere not appropriate for them.
