You may present one of the following items that is in your name and has the correct residential street address on it for consideration:

  • Current Property Tax Receipt for Real Property
  • Current home telephone, cable, or utility bill with service address
  • Current bank statement

If you do not have a Florida Driver's License or Florida State Identification, you may present a current Driver's License or State Identification from another U.S. State, a U.S. Military Identification, or a Passport. (These exceptions require that the Library make a photocopy of the identification presented.)


We can place your photo in our system as an added tool for identity. The pictures are not to be considered an absolute deterrent against others using your card. You are responsible to provide us with immediate notice if you lose your card.

If you register for your card in person, we can place your photo in the system at the time of registration. If you receive your card through the mail after registering online, we can add the photo at your request when you visit any OCLS location.
