Services of the Seminole Community Library
Community (non-student) library cards are available to residents of Pinellas County. Applicants must be 14 years old and reside in cities that belong to the Pinellas Public Library Cooperative. Children’s library cards must be requested and signed for by a parent or legal guardian.
St. Petersburg College issues student ID cards that also are used as library cards. Students are financially responsible for all items borrowed on their ID card.
Library materials may be returned to any member library of the Pinellas Public Library Cooperative or to any SPC campus library. Lost or stolen cards should be promptly reported to avoid unauthorized use. Damage, loss or late return of materials will result in fines or other charges.
