You asked and we listened! Patrons may now opt to renew their library cards without visiting a branch by sending a picture or scan of a current utility bill which clearly shows your name, street address, and the date to email@example.com. Unfortunately, we are unable to renew an account when only a PO Box is shown. You may block out the account number on the bill if you prefer. Staff will confirm contact information and renew the account. The image of the bill will then be deleted. You are eligible for a card renewal if you still live, work, go to school or own property in the library district.

Corvallis-Benton County Public Library presents the 3rd annual Sip & Spell: A Spelling Bee for Adults, hosted by Mike McInally, Editor of the Corvallis Gazette-Times, on Saturday, February 4, 2017 at 7:00 PM at the Whiteside Theatre (361 SW Madison Ave) in Corvallis. Do you spell words like synecdoche in your sleep? Maybe you don’t care what pococurante is, but you definitely know how to spell it? Then don’t miss Sip & Spell, a spelling bee for adults age 18 and over. We’ll be pulling all of the big words out of the dictionary and prizes will be awarded to the 1st place winner. Participants in the Bee may register on the day of the Bee between 5:30pm and 6:45pm at the Whiteside Theatre. Registration is limited to the first 85 registrants. There is a $5.00 registration fee that may be paid by cash, check, or credit card during the registration period. Sip & Spell is free to watch, so all are welcome to sit on the sidelines to cheer and heckle. Food provided by Café Yumm and beer and cider from Block 15 and 2 Towns Ciderhouse will be available for purchase. “Cheats” may also be purchased at the time of registration.
