Public Records Request

Please read the Public Records Request Policy and Calculation of Fees documents before submitting a completed form.

The Scappoose Public Library District shall fully comply with the Oregon Public Records Law, ORS 192.410-192.505 

  • Specificity of Request: in order to facilitate the public’s access to records in the district’s possession, and to avoid unnecessary expenditure of staff time, persons requesting access to public records for inspection or copying must submit written requests for copies of records specifying the records required by date(s), subject matter, and other such detail as may be necessary to enable the Library personnel to readily locate the records sought.
  • Access: The Library will permit public inspection and examination of its non-exempt public records during regular business hours (10 – 5 PM, M-F) in the Library. Copies of non-exempt public records maintained in electronic formshall be made available in the form requested if available. If not available in the form requested, they shall be made available in the form maintained. (ORS 192.440(2)).
  • When a request is submitted in writing, the Library must respond within 5 business days acknowledging the receipt of the request. The Library then has 10 business days to fulfill the request or issue a written response estimating how long fulfillment will take. The Library is not subject to this response time frame if it is awaiting a response from the requester seeking clarification of the request or if the requester has not agreed to pay for the records provided that the cost is $25 or more.

Records Exempt from Public Records Law

  • The Library shall not release records that the Oregon Attorney General has ruled are exempt from public records law. In general, these relate to personnel and personnel information. A complete list is available at
