To Patrons of the Langlois Public Library(LPL)
TEMPORARY LIBRARY CLOSURE
Effective September 5, 2019 the Library will be closed for a brief period to reorganize staffing, finances, and policies. During this hiatus patrons may still return books and DVDs to the LPL book drop and check out materials at any other Coastline library. We regret this inconvenience to our patrons.
The Library’s financial stability is the LPL Board’s top priority. The Library needs about $35,000 for our usual operations from July 1 through mid- November when property taxes come in. But this year on July 1 we had some large unanticipated expenses to deal with and only $27,000 available to spend. Today we no longer have enough money to continue business as usual. We will be exploring options for cost-cutting and for additional funding.
The public is invited to a
Special Meeting at the Library, Wednesday, September 18, 6:30 PM
for a status review, Q&A, and public input. We hope to re-open soon after.
Our thanks to the Curry County Library Network, and in particular the Port Orford Public Library, for their help and guidance during this period of reorganization.
The Board is seeking dedicated volunteer participation to be part of the Langlois Public Library family. Volunteers are needed: to assist staff with check-in, check-out and shelving; for lawn mowing and grounds care; for Library website and patron bulletin board upkeep. For information call 541-348-2021 or email firstname.lastname@example.org .
The community of Langlois and all LPL patrons are needed to help plan, build, and maintain the future of our Library.
Susan Orbom, Chair, LPL Board

Hosted by the makers, creators, and entrepreneurs of the Southern Oregon Coast, the experiences take place at shores, trails, farms, towns, restaurants, galleries, and businesses. Come for a long weekend or a week. Sign up for one experience or five. Learn more at liveculturecoast.com.
The celebration follows a choose-your-own-itinerary format: Forage for wild mushrooms with a farmer. Read roadside poetry or make a serigraph print. Learn about fermentation, cask ales, brewing or aromatic bitters. Ride a fat-tire bike on the beach. Hike with your five senses. Indulge in a lake-to-table meal.
Live Culture Coast also gives travelers easy ways to explore the best of the Southern Oregon Coast, including the Wild Rivers Coast Food Trail, and outdoor gems like the Oregon Coast Trail, the Whiskey Run Mountain Bike Trails, the Coquille River Water Trail, and the Wild Rivers Coast Scenic Bikeways.
