About the Robertsdale Library
Welcome to the Robertsdale Public Library. At the Robertsdale Public Library, our goal is to make your visit pleasant and successful. We want to help you find the material or information you need. So, please ask us if you have any questions or are unable to find what you need. You do not need a library card to use our reference services, but you will need a card to borrow material.
With our growing collection of audio and video materials, we are ready to meet the needs of the surrounding communities. A totally computerized card catalog system, and a knowledgeable, friendly staff complement this modern library constructed in 1992. In addition to it’s well-stocked collection that includes many of the latest best sellers and paperback authors, the Robertsdale Public Library sponsors various children’s and community activities. Young people and adults of all ages can find something of interest at this library.
To qualify for a library card, you must provide verification of your permanent mailing address. Items that are acceptable as verification of your mailing address are: driver’s license, P.O. Box receipt, voter registration, personalized check or mail which has been delivered to you. Juvenile patrons (under age 16) must have a parent or legal guardian present to issue a card.

Library cards are required to check-out books and use computers. The Robertsdale Public Library honors all Baldwin County Library Cards. Library cards are free. However, there is a $1.00 fee to replace a lost, stolen or destroyed card.

We have 7 computer terminals with free Internet access. There is no fee to use the terminals, however, we ask that you limit use to 1 hour when others are waiting for the computer.
