Borrow a physical book, audiobook, or movie
The library has a collection of over 30,000 books, movies and DVDs to meet your educational and entertainment needs, including an up-to-date children’s library. We also share items with our partner libraries, Wakulla County Public Library and Franklin County Public Library, to give you access to an even larger collection. You can view the catalog at http://catalog.wildernesscoast.org. If you have a library card, you can also put items on hold and view your current checkouts and due dates. Your PIN is the last 4 digits of your library card number.
There are multiple ways to pick up your items:
Visit the library. The library is open to the public Wednesday through Saturday for browsing and item selection. For the safety of other patrons and staff, please plan to conclude your visit in about 15 minutes. Click this link to get driving directions.
Pick up curbside or at the door. Monday or Tuesday, a staff member can bring your items to you at the door for pickup or leave them on the pickup table. Give the library a call at 850-342-0205 to arrange curbside, door, or contactless pickup.
Get books by mail. The library will mail books to your home at no charge with a free return label. When you are finished reading the books, please place them back in the red mail bag, affix the return label and place it in your mailbox or any USPS drop-off location.
