Obtaining a Library Card

To obtain a library card from the Waynesboro-Wayne County Library and create your library account, you will need the following:

  • A valid driver’s license or picture I.D. with your correct address or other identification containing a current address.
  • Current local home telephone number and two more reference numbers where you may be reached.
  • If you are under age 18 a parent or legal guardian must sign a parental consent form. The parent/guardian is responsible for all materials on the account.
  • The first library card is free. The first replacement card is $1.00, the next is $5.00 and the cost of each additional replacement card increases in increments of $5.00.

Once a patron receives a library card, a library account is created for the card holder. Any fees and late charges are accessed to this account, and such charges may affect the services that the cardholder may be able to use from the library. The card holder can review his account at our catalog site, where he will be prompted for the library card number and the four digit password submitted when the card is first created. If this four digit number is forgotten, the patron can come into the library to find out their password, as this information will only be provided in person.

Checking out a book:

  • Ten books and/or audios/magazines and five videos/DVDs may be checked out at one time per card. Books and audios check out for three weeks, videos & DVDs for five days and magazines for one week.
  • There is not a charge to check out items but certain items do require a $10 refundable deposit at time of checkout. Examples include GED, ASVAB and ACT test books.
  • You may renew items two times by bringing the item into the library for renewal or by requesting a renewal by. calling the library at 601-735-2268 during our regular working hours
  • You may bring your items back to the Waynesboro-Wayne County Library during our regular working hours and also for your convenience there is an outside drive-thru depository. We ask that you do not use the depository for audio and visual materials.
  • Patrons will be responsible for the full cost of lost items based on the replacement cost. The fee for damaged items will depend upon the nature and extent of the damage and will be determined by the library director. Parents/Guardians are responsible for all items checked out to their children.

Records maintained by any library funded in whole or in part by public funds, which contain information relating to the identity of a library user, relative to the user’s use of books or other materials at the library, shall be confidential. Such records may only be released with the express written permission of the respective library user or as the result of a court order. (Mississippi Code of 1972 SEC. 39-3-365)

For more information, stop by the library any time Monday through Friday, 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM, Saturday 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM, or contact the library at 601-735-2268.
