GETTING A LIBRARY CARD

The Davenport Public Library is an independent city library, and not a part of a library system. It is supported by the taxpayers of the City of Davenport, Washington. Use by non-residents who reside in the towns or un-incorporated areas of Lincoln County, Washington is extended as a courtesy by the Davenport Public Library Board of Trustees and Davenport City Council for a designated annual fee per household address.
