Get your FREE library card now!

You can get a temporary library card from the comfort of your own home!  It’s simple.  

  1. Complete the form below to get a temporary card number.
    When you first sign in to our catalogue with your new temporary card number, you will be prompted to create a new username and PIN. This login information will remain the same with your permanent library card.

  2. Try out some of our great stuff for 30 days.
    With your temporary card you can browse our catalogue, put items on hold, and access many databases (excludes most eBooks, downloadable eAudiobooks and downloadable music, e.g. no access to Learn4Life, Hoopla, IndieFlix, Freegal, Freading, Overdrive, One Click or Zinio.) 

    After 30 days, cards that are not activated will no longer be able to access any of our resources.

  3. Visit us to activate your card and get it all!
    Visit any one of our 18 branches with your I.D., proof of address and temporary card number to activate your full library card. (Kids, you also need to bring a parent or guardian!) 
    Your activated card gives you full borrowing privileges, use of the Internet in our branches, access to all our online services including free music downloads from Freegal, magazine downloads from Zinio and eBooks from Freading, Overdrive and One Click.
