We all know that you can check out popular books on a variety of subjects and genres, but did you also know that with your library card you can…

•Check out or place a hold on brand new movies.

•Take a proctored exam. Whether it’s for a distance learning course or for certification, you can make an appointment to take a proctored exam here at the library.

•Experience virtual reality through our Oculus Rift + Touch (see a list of experiences available on our website).

•Have full access to all six member libraries within the Okaloosa County Public Library Cooperative (Crestview, Mary Esther, Valparaiso, Niceville, Destin, and Fort Walton Beach).

•The OCPLC also offers free courier service, which means you can have items sent to your library for pick up.

•Download free eBooks, audiobooks, or magazines which is a great if you find that you can’t make it to the library.

•Get free one-on-one tutoring for basic computer skills or help with your tablet or other mobile device.

We also have many ongoing and special programs and classes for people of all ages and interests, from Story Class and Lap Sit to Open-mic Poetry Jams and Chess Club. Our electronic resources offer a wealth of information from free legal forms to resume help and job searches.
