What to Bring

When you come to get your Library Card, please bring one piece of government ID with a picture.

Family Membership

A Family is defined as all persons living at a single address. They do not have to be related. If two unrelated adults are sharing accommodation, they may choose to share a membership with one barcode. The membership must be renewed each year to remain active. The named cardholder is responsible for any fines or losses.

Adult Membership

An Adult Membership can be purchased by an individual 13 years old or over but under 65 years.  Only the person who is named on the account can use it.  People who wish to be able to share their library card should get a Family Membership.

Senior Membership

A senior is defined as an individual aged 65 years or older. While the membership is free, it still needs to be renewed each year to remain active, and the cardholder is responsible for any fines or losses.

Child Membership

A child 12 years of age or younger may have their own membership free of charge as long as a parent or guardian has an active library card. This card also needs to be renewed yearly to remain active. The parent/guardian with a membership is responsible for any fines or losses.

Institutional Membership

An institution is a business, school or organization, usually with multiple users having access to the benefits of a membership. This membership needs to be renewed each year to remain active and the institution’s head (person named on the account) is responsible for fines and losses.
