Items checked out from the Niceville Public Library may be returned to any OCPLC member library. Book drops are located at all locations as a convenience for patrons to return materials.

Over the course of being a Niceville Library user, you may end up damaging or losing library material. We understand that accidents happen to all of us. If you lose or damage an item owned by our library, we would prefer that you purchase an item identical to the one you are replacing and bring it to us for processing. You could also choose to pay for the item. Please call the library at 850-279-6436 ext. 1500 or visit the front desk to report the item lost or damaged. If you find an item that you have already paid the replacement cost for, you may receive a refund, minus a processing fee.
