Who can check out Lending Library items?
The items pictured below are available to any educator in our 5 Oregon counties and educators in Klickitat and Skamania counties in Washington. This is program is constantly evolving. If you have suggestions, please contact us.
Lending Library process
Our lending library items are mostly available through the SAGE library system. You make a request online and have it delivered to your closest library. A few large items are housed at the STEM Hub. For those items the Hub Director will be in touch to arrange delivery or pick up of the item. (Feel free to contact us directly if you don't get a timely response).
Oregon residents: use your county/city library card to make requests through your library's online portal or CGCC's site (links below).
Oregon residents without access to a city library: you may sign up for a card at Columbia Gorge Community Colleges Library in The Dalles (Building 1).
Washington Gorge residents: you may get a library card from the Hood River Library and then access the SAGE system.
