Obituary Request Policies

The Tulare County Library will search for obituaries* at no cost to patrons residing in the San Joaquin Valley Library System (SJVLS) service area. For obituary requests from patrons outside the SJVLS service area, a fee of $3.00 per obituary request is charged. If the exact date the notice appeared in the newspaper is not known, we will search newspapers printed a maximum of 7 days after the date of death.

Requests may be submitted by mail (please use our obituary request form), phone, or email.
