ILL: For additional details & the complete WFPL ILL Policy:

The West Florida Public Library (WFPL) System’s Interlibrary Loan Service offers library card holders in good standing the ability to request materials not owned by our library system, from other libraries around the state and across the U.S. InterLibrary Loan Department: 850.436.5066

Purchase Suggestions:


Password Help: Patron PIN numbers are initially set to the last four digits of the patron’s home phone number at the time of issue of their library card.  Contact the library (850-436-5060) if login problems continue.

The WFPL does not have access to patrons’ login information for e-audio resources (OneClick Digital).  This information was selected by the patron specifically for this service upon creating an account . If they know their username but have forgotten their password, they can use the “forgot password” link in the One login screen. Their password will be sent to the email address that they provided when they signed up. If they have forgotten both their username and password, they will need to contact OneClick.

Patrons do not have to have a username and password for ebooks, though they may create an account for bookmarking and notes at the sign-in link at the top right of the EBSCOhost  page. They must keep track of username/password if they create an account.

Policies and Library Use: 

WFPL Code of Conduct:

Circulation Policy:

WFPL library cards are issued free of charge to Escambia County residents. The non-resident fee is $50 per year.  Because of the large number of visitors who take extended vacations each year in Escambia County, non-resident patrons may qualify for a special exemption.

Patrons are allowed to check out 15 books (combination of juvenile and adult), 4 DVDs, 8 magazines, 4 books on CD, and 4 audio CDs.

Reserves Policy:

Holds can be placed online through the Catalog.  After an item is located in the catalog, look for the “Place Hold” option on the left side of the screen. Library Card Number and PIN are required.  The default PIN is the last four digits of the patron’s phone number. A patron may also call the Receptionist at the Main Library (850-436-5060) or contact the Reference Deck (850-436-5063) to request a hold.  Available items/holds will not be pulled from the shelf until the next business day.  If the patron needs the item the same day, he/she may call ahead to the library branch where the item is held to request that the item be pulled from the shelf and set aside.  This same day service is not guaranteed as it depends on available staff, but WFPL staff will accommodate patrons when possible. Once an item becomes available or is pulled to be placed on hold, it will be held for the patron three (3) calendar days excluding Sunday before the next patron is notified or it is returned to the shelf.

Genealogy Library Information:

The West Florida Genealogy Library is a reference & research library only (materials in its collection do NOT circulate). The collection is focused on genealogy and local history for the area. Local History resources about the City of Pensacola, Escambia County, West Florida, and Surrounding Alabama Counties include maps, books, newspaper clippings, telephone books, and archived Pensacola City Directories (only the most current issue of the Pensacola City Directory is available at the Main Library). Archived copies of the Pensacola News Journal from 1954 to present (with some sporadic issues between 1824 – 1919) are stored at this location on microfilm. Also, all microfilm owned by the WFPL is at this location.

Genealogy Library staff and WFGS volunteers are available to assist with patron information searches, including obituary requests (some fees maybe required).  Further inquires can be made by phone during regular business hours (Tuesdays – Saturdays 10AM-6PM) or by e-mail at
