Ancestry.com Access TerminalGenealogy research made easy.
As a patron of the Okaloosa Public Library Cooperative, you have access to the Destin Library's Ancestry.com subscription. This service can be used for in-depth genealogical research any time the library is open.
To access the Ancestry.com terminal, see the circulation desk staff. A valid photo ID and active OCPLC library card will be required.
It is library policy to shut down the Ancestry.com terminal 15 minutes prior to our scheduled closing time. There is no cost associated with use of the Ancestry.com terminal.
Visitors do not have access to Ancestry.com services.

Public Access PCsBecause nobody should worry about Internet access.
Our 12 public access PCs are available for use by all library patrons, both cardholders and visitors. Sessions are limited to 2 hours except in special circumstances (to be determined by library staff prior to the initiation of your session).
Cardholders can use their 14-digit library card number, located beneath the barcode on the back of their library card, for their first sign-on of the day. Should they have to step away from the computers before their session is finished, they can request a guest pass for the balance of their session time.
Visitors will need to request a guest pass from the circulation desk.
The PC session reservation system automatically shuts down 15 minutes prior to our scheduled closing time. No computer sessions can be initiated after that time. Staff cannot override this feature.
