Kindle Lending Program
Woodburn adult and senior patrons can borrow a Kindle Paperwhite for two weeks and take it on a test drive. Complete a Borrower Agreement at the Reference Desk to get started. Kindles are preloaded with books in five genres: action and suspense; current affairs and biography; heart and soul; mystery; and romance. Check often, as we will be adding new books to each Kindle every month. This program is made available through the generous support of the Friends of Woodburn Library and Woodburn Area Association for Senior Programs.
Woodburn adult-resident and adult-fee patrons can use their CCRLS library card at participating libraries throughout the state. Get an OLPP sticker from the Circulation Desk, then sign up for additional library cards at OLPP libraries that are convenient to you.
Hidalgo Bronze Bust
A bronze bust of Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla, a gift to the people of Woodburn from the people of Guanajuato, Mexico, is prominently displayed in the main reading area of the library. Our librarians are eager to help you learn more about the Father of Mexican Independence.
Ice Age Fossils of Woodburn
The library now features a permanent rotating collection of ice-age fossils collected from Woodburn's Mill Creek. The display is featured at the north end of the mezzanine. Students from Woodburn High School have prepared an informational brochure.
