Sign Me Up - Free
Library cards are FREE from March 13, 2013 to March 13, 2014. It's our birthday gift to you, to celebrate 100 years of a great library in our great city.
Better still, our friends at the Edmonton International Airport have generously donated round-trip tickets for two people on United's new EIA to Newark New York non-stop service. Get your FREE library between March 13 and June 1, 2013 and you are entered to win. Click here for more details. You are also entered if you renew your card before June 1, 2013. If your card expires with 30 days you can renew it online and be entered to win.
Start by getting your FREE library card. You can get a temporary library card from the comfort of your own home! It’s simple.
- 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.
- 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 Freegal, Freading, Overdrive and One Click.)
After 30 days, cards that are not activated will no longer be able to access any of our resources.
- Visit us to activate your card and get it all!
Visit any one of our 17 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.
