(1) The State Librarian shall use the
population estimates for cities and counties included in the publication,
Population Estimates for Oregon, published by the Center for Population
Research and Census, Portland State University, as amended by the latest
supplements to this publication.
(2) In accordance with ORS
a public library may be assigned population beyond its governing authority's
jurisdiction in cases where the library has a valid contract with a unit of
local government to provide services to this population. The contract, which
must be on file at the State Library, must grant the library the sole
responsibility to serve the population in question, and the population must be
specified in the contract in a clear and precise manner, in order for
additional population to be assigned for grant purposes. Public libraries
established as non-profit corporations under Oregon law may be assigned
population and may receive grants only in this manner.
(3) In cases other than those described in
section (2) of this rule, where the same population is served by two or more
public libraries, the State Librarian shall determine which public library is
the primary service provider to the population in question, and shall assign
the population to the primary service provider. In making this determination
the State Librarian shall consider the location of library facilities and any
available statistics on patterns of library use by the population in
