Get a Library Card

lib-card-webLibrary card membership gives you access to books, ebooks, DVDs, CDs, and lots more. Library cards are available to anyone who lives, works, or owns property in Citrus County. Everyone, from adults to kids, is encouraged to get a library card--the smartest card in your wallet.

To get a card

Stop in at any of our libraries and we'll sign you up for a card right away. The process takes less than ten minutes--and in return, a world of learning and knowledge opens for you!

To join the library and get a card, show us:
  • A photo ID such as a driver's license or military ID
  • Proof of your current Citrus County address, such as your driver's license, utility bill, rental agreement, or other piece of official mail with your address
or
  • Proof of employment, whether it's a pay stub or official document
Non-residents may purchase a three year library card for $10.00. Children under the age of 16 may obtain a library card with a parent or guardian signature verifying identity and residency. Lost card replacements cost $1.00.

About your card

Our library card memberships are issued for a period of 3 years, and are honored in all five Citrus County Library System branches. A library card is required for electronic transactions such as downloadable ebooks & audiobooks or certain databases.

Loan periods: 14 days for books, audio materials like cassettes or CDs, and video materials like DVDs. 21 days for interlibrary loans, which are items borrowed from partner libraries outside the Citrus County Library System.

Materials on loan to another borrower may be placed on request through the library catalog. Materials may be requested from any of the Citrus County Library System branches through the library catalog and delivered to the branch location of choice. Materials not owned by the Citrus County Library System may be attainable through Interlibrary Loan. Ask your reference librarian for more information.

Ask a Librarian

What can we do for you today?

Ask A Librarian, Florida’s virtual reference service, is designed to handle requests similar to those asked at the reference desk in the library or by telephone. A trained information professional can guide you to the answer you need in minutes rather than your wasting hours navigating hundreds of unhelpful and irrelevant web sites. More than 100 libraries statewide collaborate to provide this service to their patrons and the patrons of other participating libraries.

There are three formats in which virtual reference questions can be submitted. You can choose to either:

1. Chat now with a Librarian

With the exception of holidays, live Chat is available: * Sunday through Thursday, 10:00 am – Midnight * Friday and Saturday, 10:00 am – 5:00 pm Chat allows you to communicate with a librarian in real time.

2. Text message a Librarian

With the exception of holidays, Text Messaging is available: * Sunday through Thursday, 10:00 am – Midnight * Friday and Saturday, 10:00 am – 5:00 pm Our texting service means you can text us from your mobile phone at the moment you need assistance from wherever you are! Use Text to ask simple, quick questions (up to 160 characters) that can be answered in brief responses. You will text a local phone number and include a keyword before your question. You will receive an answer from a live librarian within minutes! * Local phone number: (352) 354-2991 (you must include the area code) *Start your message with the keyword: cls Since Ask A Librarian is staffed by real librarians from public, academic, and special libraries throughout Florida, you will most likely chat with or text a librarian who does not work at your local library and does not have access to your personal library records”

3. Email a Librarian at the Citrus County Library System

Questions may be submitted via email at any time. Please be sure to include your name, phone number, return email address, and as many details about your question as possible. A Librarian will get back to you within 72 hours, Monday through Friday, excluding holidays. For example, questions received on Friday will receive a response by the following Wednesday.

Ask a Librarian is administered by the Tampa Bay Library Consortium and is funded as part of the Florida Electronic Library by a Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) grant.

Be Involved

Our library system has a fiercely active community of library supporters, and there are lots of ways for you to be involved: you can volunteer individually or through the Friends of the Library, work with the Library Advisory Board, or partner with us through your community business or organization.
