JCLS in Medford is our home library and as such serves us as a very good source of books for pleasure reading and audio books for road trips. While I know there are many programs offered each week, we have not taken advantage of them. There are history and book talks, movies, craft and story times. With its huge community... More

I attend an large group's meetings at the library every month. I also check out books regularly and use their computer system. This is a first rate library and an absolute necessity for Medford and Jackson County.

I love taking my children to this library. Not only is it two stories and houses a good collection, but it constantly offers free classes and events to families, such as a Lego building night for kiddos. The kicker is the hours kind of suck, but that is a funding issue and not really the libraries fault, and parking is... More

The librarians are generally very friendly and the building is awesome. Large childrens section and very good reading room with access to current editions of... More

Very limited open hours. Excellent beautiful buildings but low volume of materials to check out. All the tax moneys was for the properties not materials. Limited computer use time to less than 1 hour per card holder. Some people that work there are not happy and are short with customers. But I have seen customers be rude and disrespectful to... More

This new and very modern library has something for everyone. Even though it is known for the traditional literary offerings it also stocks all the recent magazines that contain many new updated events & news.

It's beautiful and a great place to explore, read, be sedentary, or use the computer. The expanded hours were needed and are appreciated. And, it offers other needed services to the community, as well. I recommend that those in Medford who despairingly call it the 'Taj Mahal' should spend more time using it.

What a beautiful library and they recently expanded their hours, floors of books, magazines, periodicals, etc. Wonder place to sit and enjoy the quiet in some lovely rooms.

This modern library has lots of space for reading periodicals, doing work on your computer or browsing the stacks. The childrens' section is excellent. The books of all the county libraries can be ordered on-line and the web site works well.
