What is Library Linx? Linx logo

Library Linx is a partnership between Deschutes County schools and Deschutes Public Library (DPL). It provides the opportunity for students and teachers to place holds on public library materials and have the materials delivered to their school. The materials are then checked out in the school’s media center by the media manager/specialist. It creates library users out of students who might not otherwise be able to visit a public library, and allows for teachers to have quick and easy access to materials that supplement what they have at school.

Approximately 25 schools in Bend, La Pine, and Redmond are Linx schools, based on a variety of responsibilities and criteria. Check with the media manager/specialist at your school and find out if they are part of the partnership.

If your child already has a DPL library card, you’re done. Your child can place DPL materials on hold and use his/her card at the school library to check them out.

Remember that, like all of our library cards, it allows for access to the entire collection. When a parent signs the Linx Library Card Application, he/she agrees to the following: “By signing this form, you give permission for your child to use the library freely.” The Library provides a collection for all ages and interests, and encourages parents to guide his/her own child on making selections that are appropriate for their family.
