I'm not a resident. Can I get a library card?
Yes, non-residents may apply for and purchase a non-resident library card. (Those who live in certain nearby counties may qualify for free reciprocal borrower cards. See "I live in a nearby county. Can I get a library card?" for more information.)
Non-resident cards offer the same library privileges as Sarasota County resident cards.
Non-resident cards are available for the following three fees / terms:
- $15 for a three-month card
- $25 for a six-month card
- $40 for a yearly / twelve-month card
The fees for non-resident library cards are non-refundable.
See "How do I apply for a library card?" for more information on the application process.
