Oregon Poetry Collection
Find a Poetry Book in the Collection
In 2007, the Oregon State Library and the Oregon State Poetry Association joined together to preserve, promote, and make accessible publications of Oregon poets.  Publications in this special collection are written by Oregon poets, past and present, or deal substantially with Oregon subject matter.
Please use this online catalog to find out what is in our collection!

Check Out a Poetry Book from the State Library
Any Oregonian, with a current photo ID, may check out circulating items from the Oregon Poetry Collection by coming to the State Library’s Reference Room or asking their local library to request the item through interlibrary loan.  Non-circulating items may be used at the State Library, just ask the Reference Librarian at the desk to retrieve the item for you.

Donate a Poetry Book to the Collection
The Oregon Poetry Collection is dependent on donations.  All gifts and donations become the property of the State Library, which is primarily responsible for monographs, or the Oregon State Poetry Association, which is responsible for ephemeral and archival items. Any items that are needed will be added to the collection.  All other items will be distributed to other organizations or entities as deems appropriate.  If you would like to donate poetry books written by Oregon poets please ship them to:
