If Jackson County can't find a way to keep all 15 library branches open, what would happen to the buildings? Following is a preliminary answer from county officials based on leases and other arrangements made with cities.
Ashland: The building and contents would be transferred back to the city.
Applegate: The county's lease with the Ellis Trust for the land would end.
Central Point: The county would continue to retain ownership of the first floor of the library. City offices are shared in the same building.
Eagle Point: The county owns both the land and the building.
Gold Hill: The county owns both the land and the building.
Jacksonville: The city would take ownership of the building.
Medford: The county owns the building; the parking lot would revert back to the Medford Urban Renewal Agency.
Phoenix: The county owns the building and land. However, the city can use a 150-square-foot meeting room until construction is completed on a new city hall.
Rogue Community College: If the county decides to close the Central Library entirely, RCC, which leases part of the building, would have to remove all of its personal property and furnishings.
Talent: The city, which already owns the land, would take ownership of the building and a parking lot.
Rogue River: County owns the land and building.
Ruch: County owns the land and building.
