  • 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.
