Libraries in Clackamas County (LINCC) is a consortium of the public libraries of Clackamas County, Oregon. It was established in 1977 when the first county-wide funding levy was approved by county voters. LINCC is a resource and revenue sharing network with a single library computer system.

The consortium remains distinct from the Library District of Clackamas County created by a ballot measure voted on during the 2008 general election.[1][2]

Consortium

LINCC includes:

The member libraries share an integrated library system which allows cooperative borrowing. Shared services, including cataloging, computer support, courier, and interlibrary loan, are coordinated by the Network Office, a department of the county government. The system currently offers nearly half a million titles, 1.2 million items, and serves over 200,000 members, who check out more than 6.2 million items each year.

Library District

In November 2008, Measure 3-310[1] was passed by Clackamas County voters, leading to the creation of a Library District that established permanent property tax-based funding for libraries in the county.[13]

The cities of Damascus, Tualatin, and Johnson City opted out of the district's creation.[1] In May 2010, a close vote by the small subset of Tualatin residents who are also Clackamas County residents meant that they would join the district.[14] Following a petition signed by 300 Damascus residents, Damascus voters approved a measure to join the Clackamas County library district in November 2010.[15]
