Adults and minors age 16 years or older, who are residents of Lynn Haven, may acquire a Library Card free of charge provided they have a proof of residency and current address and an identification card. Proof of residency may be a recent Gulf Power Electric bill or property tax statement showing taxes paid to the City of Lynn Haven or a Property Deed. Water or other utility bills can not be used as proof of residency. Acceptable identification cards include Driver's License, Florida or Military ID.
A parent or legal guardian may obtain library cards for children age 15 and under as long as the parent/guardian also possesses a card. A parent/guardian is the responsible party for the minor card holder and assumes all responsibility for the proper care and return of materials checked out by the minor.
People living outside the city limits of Lynn Haven may enjoy all the rights and privileges available to resident card holders for a $10 annual, nonrefundable fee. The cost for Seniors, age 60 and over, is $7. Families, up to five persons, will be charged $25 annually. Nonresidents must present an identification card, as indicated, and documentation showing their current address.
Ten items may be checked out per card with the following restrictions:
Books are checked out for a period of three weeks. They may be renewed for an additional three weeks as long as they are not reserved for another patron and the your account is in good standing.
You may handle both transactions by telephone provided you have your Library Card number. After establishing a PIN with a librarian you may also visit the Library's website to place "Holds," renew books and check the status of your account.
Overdue books incur fines of $0.05 per day, per book. A patron having fees of $5 or more on his/her card, or on a family member's card, loses borrowing privileges until fees drop below the $5 limit. Partial payment of fees is accepted.
Patrons are responsible for any damage to or loss of items they borrow. Mending, processing, or replacement fees will be assessed for such items.
Library Cards may be replaced for a $2 charge. All information and fees will be transferred to your new card. The old one will no longer be valid.
