Oregon College of Art & Craft closing in May

The Oregon College of Art & Craft will be permanently closing in May. OCAC has been a valued special library in WCCLS for many years, and we will miss their unique contribution to our Cooperative.

When will the OCAC library close?

The OCAC library is open through the end of the semester, May 17. All OCAC library materials must be returned by May 10.

What will happen to OCAC material checkouts and holds?
If you currently have any OCAC library items checked out, those will have a due date of May 10.  Holds on OCAC materials are now only allowed for OCAC registered patrons. No renewals are allowed for any OCAC materials.  As of May 20, all OCAC items will no longer appear in the online catalogs.

What will happen to the OCAC collection?
OCAC is finding new homes for their library collection, including Pacific Northwest College of Art (PNCA), Washington County Cooperative Library Services member libraries, and other non-profit cultural institutions who will care for and make the collections accessible. That means you can look forward to seeing more wonderful arts and crafts titles at your local library!
