Although I don't work at a library that has this kind of policy, I
live in Eugene and our public library allows homeless residents to
obtain cards. They verify residency through agencies that provide
services to people who are homeless. You can read the requirements

I've also seen library policies that accept car registration as
proof of residency. <br>
I hope this helps. Good luck to you!<br>

<div>We're currently exploring ways to better serve our transient
population here in Lincoln City. In the past we have worked
out cards for individuals staying at a nearby domestic violence
shelter, and we allow anyone to make use of our computers, but I
would like to set up something more permanent and wide-ranging
that would allow individuals without a permanent address to
better access library services.</div>
<div>We have some ideas here on staff, but I would be very
interested in hearing how other libraries have tackled this.
What kinds of requirements do you have in order to obtain a
card? Do cards for those without permanent address have the same
borrowing privileges, or modified privileges? Have you
experienced a great deal of material loss, or no? I suspect I
may have to work pretty hard to get 100% buy-in from my board
and from staff, so any information you've got would be great!</div>
