I want to introduce our library to all Crestview, Baker, Laurel Hill and Holt area households.
We are a member of the Okaloosa County Public Library Cooperative, with libraries in Crestview, Niceville, Mary Esther, Valparaiso, Fort Walton Beach, Destin and the Library Spot lending machine in Baker.
All six libraries offer free library cards for Okaloosa County residents, usable at each OCPLC site.
All you need to get a library card is a photo ID, proof of your current street address (such as a driver’s license, voter registration form or utility bill) and a telephone number.
Libraries are a good investment, whether from a user or taxpayer's view.
After all, our libraries provide services for everyone. You can feel safe and relaxed while reading newspapers and magazines, finding books on interesting subjects or finding audio books, music CDs and movies on DVD.
Free Internet access can connect you to government information, job searches and business opportunities, and you can bring the kids to story time activities to help them become literate.
We have meeting spaces, reserved at minimal cost, that accommodate small or medium-sized groups.
Take the tour
Our library has become the community's go-to place for information and entertainment. On any given day, you can come here and find wonderful displays of art, including paintings or three-dimensional pieces; or find groups and clubs with various interests like photography, writing and knitting.
Plan on visiting us! We would love to give you the grand tour and get you started as a library member.
We're located at 1445 Commerce Drive, Crestview. Our hours are Mondays through Tuesdays, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.; Wednesdays through Thursdays, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.; Fridays, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.; and Saturdays 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Jean Lewis is the Crestview Public Library's director.
