Mission Statement

The mission of the Jackson County Library District is to connect everyone to information, ideas and each other.

Description

Jackson County Library Services (JCLS) serves the 212,000 residents of Jackson County with 15 branch libraries. The mission of the Jackson County Library District is to connect everyone to information, ideas, and each other. We provide a wide range of children’s, teen, and adult physical and electronic resources and collections as well as outreach services, including booktalks for elementary and middle school students, services for homebound patrons, and outreach to childcare centers. Our ever-changing calendar of programs and events is diverse, including musical performances, lectures, art exhibits, classes, book groups, storytimes, and more.

The largest event in the JCLS calendar is the Medford Comic Con, held annually in the spring or summer since 2015. The first Medford Comic Con had an attendance of over 2,000 people, making it the largest JCLS hosted event up to that point. Attendance continued to more than double in 2016 and 2017 with a peak of over 12,000, making it the largest library event in the state.

JCLS receives dedicated funding through the Jackson County Library District (JCLD), which was formed in 2014. The JCLD contracts with Library Systems & Services to operate Jackson County libraries with an innovative and professional staff. Jackson County Library Services supports our thriving community with the mission of connecting everyone to information, ideas, and each other.
