Oregon: “Roseburg Library Staff Prepares For Closure: ‘We’re All Looking For Work'” (Permanent Closure of All Douglas County Libraries)
The Roseburg library location is the last public library in Douglas County where you can still check out a book, but not for long.
The other libraries in the Douglas County Library System have closed for good.
Just like the others, the Roseburg library will soon close for good.
In last year’s November election, the majority of the community voted against the formation of a library district, an alternative funding option for the libraries.
Many people are returning their books and preparing for the upcoming dates, but library users aren’t the only ones who are getting ready for the closure. Staff members will be out of work and are planning for their future.
