You are eligible for a free library card with the Walla Walla County Rural Library District if:

This includes all areas in Walla Walla County except the cities of College Place, Waitsburg,
and Walla Walla.
- You reside within, or own property within, the city of Prescott which has a service contract
with the Rural Library District.
When applying for your library card, please bring:
- Photo ID listing your current address within the library district.

A property tax bill, rental agreement, or utility bill are all accepted.
A parent or legal guardian must sign for a library card for children
under the age of 18.
Service at the Walla Walla Public Library
In 2016, District residents may purchase a library card at the Walla Walla Public Library
and have this cost reimbursed during 2016.
Non-Resident Library Cards at the Rural Library District
Currently, the cities of College Place, Waitsburg, and Walla Walla do not have agreements
with the rural library district for library service.
If you live in these areas, or outside of Walla Walla County, you may purchase service for
$40 per year. A non-resident library card offers the same access to the library as a regular
library card as well as access to materials from the WALNET group of libraries. You may
purchase a non-resident library card from any rural library district branch.
WALNET Group of Libraries
WALNET is a group of libraries in South Eastern Washington that cooperate to provide a
shared library catalog to all library card holders. Currently WALNET consists of the Rural
Library District and the Walla Walla Community College Libraries.
Any library card issued at a WALNET member library is accepted at all Rural Library
District locations. You may check items out from any WALNET library - and return them
to any WALNET library as well.
