Ashland, Oregon: Library cards and a move-in date

Jonathan and I (and our precious cat Starfire) were accepted for an apartment that is just a couple of miles from Ashland Library in the Jackson County Library Services system.

All the easier for me to volunteer as soon as we’ve moved in,  particularly since the library facilitated our applications.

We used public computers at the Ashland Library to print forms from the apartments’ website. As new arrivals in the community, we were on the wrong side of the digital divide and our access to these forms via public computers underscored the benefit of libraries.

While at the library, we signed up for JCLS library cards. We qualify for limited service while we remain at our current address, but can upgrade for full service as soon as we are Jackson County residents.
