West Florida Libraries Offer Special Edition Library Card This Month

September 18, 2016

West Florida Public Libraries are offering a special edition library card in honor of Library Card Sign-up Month, with colorful cards featuring WFPL’s mascot Whooo the owl.

While library cards are always free for Escambia County residents, the usual $3 replacement fee for lost or damaged cards will be waived during the month of September as part of the celebration. Escambia County residents can find information about getting a library card or sign up by clicking here.

September was designated as Library Card Sign-up Month by the American Library Association in 1987, after then Secretary of Education William J. Bennett issued a challenge through a national campaign encouraging every child to obtain and regularly use a library card.

  • Century Branch Library — 7991 N. Century Boulevard
  • Molino Branch Library — 6450-A Highway 95A
  • Pensacola Library –239 N. Spring Street
  • Tryon Branch Library — 1200 Langley Avenue
