Library Card Reimbursement Program

January 11, 2016

The Walla Walla County Rural Library District is pleased to announce that it has extended the library card reimbursement program for Rural Library District residents that purchase non-resident library cards at the Walla Walla Public Library
in 2016.

District residents, or property owners, may purchase a library card at the Walla Walla Public Library and be reimbursed for the cost of one, one year card for $68, or a six month card for $34, through 2016. The reimbursement is for that calendar year only.  Library cards purchased prior to December 1, 2015, will not be reimbursed.



This service is in addition to the wide range of services provided to you as a Rural Library District resident:


The Library District is currently engaged in a library expansion project including a new
Central Library and Administrative Center.  Over the next year, library services throughout the Rural Library District will be greatly expanded to the benefit of all District residents.  Click here for more.


Quick Facts About the Reimbursement program:

  • The Rural Library Board of Trustees agreed to reimburse district residents for library cards purchased at the Walla Walla Public Library during the year 2013 and have included funding in the 2016 budget to continue this program in 2016.

  • The reimbursement program is only for library cards purchased at the Walla Walla Public Library by Rural Library District residents or property owners. The cards must be issued After December 1, 2015. Reimbursements will be through 2016.

  • The Walla Walla Public Library offers a one year library card for $68, a six month library card for $34, and will issue additional library cards to those in your household for the single fee.

  • If you chose to purchase a six month card, you may be reimbursed for a second six month card after your first card expires.
  • The library card you purchase is good for a year, or six months, from the date of purchase depending on which card you choose.  Because of this, if you have already purchased a library card in 2015, it may be valid for a portion of 2016.  Likewise, a library card purchased in 2016, may be valid into 2017, depending on when you purchase it.

  • You will be given a receipt for your payment, and a reimbursement form to return to the Rural Library District.
