Dallas Public Library

950 Main Street


The Dallas Public Library was established in 1905, through the efforts of Mrs. Irene Gerlinger and other members of the Dallas Women's Club, in a room of the old Fireman's Hall. In 1912, a building was constructed with local funds and a Carnegie Grant. The Dallas Public Library became part of the Chemeketa Community Regional Library Service in 1974, and the library went online in 1986. The present library and Senior Center complex was dedicated to Mayor Gwen VanDenBosch in August 1990. This building was made possible through the efforts of many individuals and local organizations.

This library is such a plus for the community of Dallas! Comfortably old school library ambiance and completely up to date state of the art technology coexist comfortably. Our innovative library staff continues to offer wonderful opportunities for all ages to learn and to grow. It is truly a treasure!

It's not huge, but they are connected to Chemeketa Area so I can usually get anything I need.
