Getting a Library Card

Library cards are free to all Wakulla County Residents, property owners, and those who work within the county. Cards may be obtained by presenting identification verifying name and current physical address (driver’s license, recent utility bill, phone or property tax bill, rental agreement, printed check or voter registration card). A parent or guardian must have a library card themselves and sign for an applicant 17 or under (this adult is financially responsible for any items checked out by the minor). Parents and guardians are responsible for monitoring their children’s use of library resources, we do not censor. Patrons 17 or under must have written parent or guardian permission to use computers with internet access (if not noted on their application). Non-residents may obtain a card for a yearly fee of $10.

Please present your library card when checking out materials. You are responsible for all materials checked out on your card. Please report lost or stolen cards immediately, like you would a debit card or credit card. If someone else uses your, you are responsible for any fines or fees accumulated on your account. Your first lost library card replacement is on the house, beyond that the lost card replacement fee for all patrons is $1.00.
