What is the Siuslaw Public Library District?

The Siuslaw Public Library District is a stand-alone local government and taxing district covering a patchwork area across western Lane County. The District is governed by a five-member elected Board of Directors and managed by a Library Director. The Siuslaw Public Library District Board of Directors holds regular meetings the third Wednesday of each month at 1:00 p.m. Meetings are generally held at the Library - 1460 9th Street in Florence, OR - in the Bromley Room, but are currently being held virtually per Executive Order 20-16. Find agendas and other public notices on our main page.
