Reciprocal Borrowing for Residents of Orange County, Florida, or the Incorporated City of Winter Park:
Maitland Public Library has reached an agreement to allow Orange County Library System and Winter Park Public Library resident patrons the opportunity to borrow library materials from MPL with a Reciprocal Library Card. We will call your home library to verify good standing of your borrowing privileges there. To get a Reciprocal Library Card, bring your WPPL or OCLS library card and proof of your residence address. Reciprocal borrowers may not use MPL’s electronic resources.

Minor or Dependent Children:
Minor or dependent children may have library cards of their own as either Resident or Reciprocal Borrowers. The parent or legal guardian must have a Maitland Public Library card in good standing and must be willing to accept financial responsibility for materials borrowed on the child’s card; both parent/guardian and child must be present to apply for a library card. Children have the same borrowing privileges as their parents/guardians (exception: only adult cardholders may check out S.T.E.M. Kits or the Telescope).

Borrowing Privileges for Those Living Outside of Orange County, Florida:
Fee cards are available to anyone residing outside of our service area, including those portions of Seminole County with Maitland postal addresses. Fee cards are $60 and expire in one year. Fee cards grant full access to library materials and are good for the entire household.

City of Maitland employees and teachers in schools within the City of Maitland are eligible for a free library card regardless of residence. Please provide city or teacher identification and proof of residence. Cards expire one year from the date of issue.
