The mission of the Pendleton Community Public Library is to provide traditional library services, creative initiatives, and up-to-date technology in a comfortable facility with friendly, helpful staff. In alignment with the library's mission to provide traditional library services, the Pendleton Community Public Library provides access to a collection of materials which may be checked out to patrons, in accordance with this policy.

All card holders are provided fair and equal access to the library's collection, regardless of age, color, national origin, sexual orientation, gender/gender identity, religion, political affiliation, or mental or physical disability.

Any individual who owns property, resides, or attends school in the library's service district may be issued a library card at no charge. Specific information for how to apply for a library card may be found on the library's Library Card Issuance Policy.

Patrons wishing to authorize another registered borrower to pick up holds and/or check out on their account must do so in person. These accounts will be linked in the library's system. This means that both accounts must be in good standing for either patron to use their card. Users will be held responsible for materials and charges resulting from others' authorized use of their barcode, library card, and account.

Patrons may not borrow items on an account that has fines exceeding $5.00.

Patrons who do not have their library cards with them must show a current photo ID in order to check out materials.

Individual policies regarding loan limits, fines, and renewals are detailed in the Circulation Schedule.
