Revised Hours for Orange Beach Public Library!

So as to better serve our patrons during busy hours on Wednesday from 9 AM until noon, Orange Beach Public Library will adjust our hours on Wednesdays to 9 AM to 6 PM, effective May 7th.   By adjusting staff hours we hope to provide excellent service to all patrons during highly active times. 

Forget to return a book on time? No problem.

The library is conducting a trial Overdue Fine Forgiveness period from April 20th until October 20th, 2013. Fines will still appear on your account until waived at the Orange Beach desk. We can only waive fines for Orange Beach cards.
