Hold/Request Policy

The Library's online catalog is your first step to locating books, movies, and audio material. The print and medical collection includes 70,000 books and bound volumes, 2,000 audiobooks and music CDs, 1,300 DVDs, and VHS, and over 100 subscriptions to periodicals. As a member of the Okaloosa County Public Library Cooperative (OCPLC), the online catalog searches all Okaloosa County Cooperative Libraries.

You may place a hold on an item that is owned by the FWB Library but is not currently available. Once you have located an item in the catalog, you can place a request/hold on it and have it sent to another Okaloosa County Library to pick up. You can have a maximum of 15 "active" (not yet filled) holds at any one time.

As a member of the OCPLC, we can quickly acquire via courier, materials for our patrons from five other local public libraries in the Cooperative (Destin, Valparaiso, Niceville, Crestview, and Mary Esther). Please note, you may only request items that are checked out or located at another library.
