TALENT, Ore. — Jackson County’s Talent Library sees hundreds of visitors at that branch each day. “We offer a lot of activities for patrons and of course we are accessible to anyone in the county,” said Laurel Prchel with the Talent location.
Right now it is accessible to anyone in the county, but several Jackson County libraries could close if a tax district doesn’t pass in the May election. Measure 12-122 would create funding dedicated to supporting libraries. The library system’s director says there are more than 130,000 registered cardholders in the county and some 60,000 people visit a library in the county.
The Talent location sees nearly 300 people per day checking out a total of 9,000 books per month.
