La Grande residents are eligible for free membership with full access, if they reside within La Grande city limits. Union County residents are eligible for free membership with limited access. Individuals must apply in person to receive a library card. Details are available in our Welcome Brochure.
Visit the library, or print an application below. Bring a valid and current government photo I.D. You also need proof of address, such as: a piece of mail (postdated within the last 30 days), checkbook, car registration, rent receipt, or utility bill showing both your name and current address.
Residents of Elgin, North Powder, and Union may obtain a library card from their hometown library, or pay for a Cook Memorial Library membership for full access. A library card from any of the above libraries may be used at Cook Memorial Library with limited access. Anyone, regardless of residential address may purchase a full access membership.
Cook Memorial Library belongs to the Sage Library Consortium, which means your library card is accepted at all Sage libraries; there may be restrictions on what services you can access and what materials you may borrow, however.
