Curbside Pickup

The Destin Library is offering Curbside Pickup. Please place materials on hold through the online catalog for curbside pickup. To place holds visit the Read Okaloosa Website and log in to your online catalog account using your library card number and PIN. When you receive a notification that your items are ready for pickup, come by the library M-F 9am-4:30pm and call 850.837.8572 for a staff member to bring you your items.

Renewal and Holds

Materials (except DVDs and new release books) may be renewed twice by phone or online from the library website catalog. To renew online, enter your 14-digit library barcode number (typed without spaces) and your PIN. Click on “My Account,” select "Checked Out," choose the items you would like to renew using the checkboxes to the left of the item, and click "Renew Selected" at the bottom of the page.  Online renewals are blocked on accounts with large fines or more than four overdue items. Items on hold request by another patron may not be renewed. Holds for items currently checked out or at another OCPLC library may be placed online. Email notices for hold requests ready for pick-up are automatically sent out. Please note that the email is sent out before your requested item hits our shelves. You may wish to call before making a special trip to the library.
