To get a library card, you need to apply in person with:
- a driver’s license or BCID with your current address or
- two pieces of identification: one with your current address.
|Personal ID||ID with Street Address|
A parent's or legal guardian's signature is required for library cards for children 12 years of age and under.
New library cardholders have limited borrowing privileges for the first month. A total of 5 items of any material combined may be checked out at one time.
Your card must have no charges or overdue items to be changed to regular borrower status.
Using other Libraries
Public Library InterLINK is a group of libraries from the Lower Mainland, Fraser Canyon, and Whistler areas. Residents of these communities can go to any member library and register to borrow material. Please bring your home library card and identification with you.
If you are visiting a region of BC outside the InterLINK area, you can register at those libraries too. When you get to your destination, take your home library card and current ID to the local library and ask for the OneCard decal. Full details are here: BC OneCard.
Library cardholder's responsibilities
You are responsible for all material borrowed on your card and for any charges on items that are overdue, lost or damaged.
If your library card is lost or stolen, report it immediately by phone, in person or by e-mail. We will block the card, so no one can use it. You are still responsible for any items checked out on your card until you report it missing.
If you change your address or other personal information, please contact the Library.
