How to get a library card online!

It is not always easy to pop in to the library, but do not let that stop you from becoming a member and signing up for your very own library card! Click on the video above for a step-by-step demonstration on what to do - oh, don't forget to grab your grown-up, they will need to be there! 

Why are libraries so great?

The public library is awesome! 

It is a free space with loads of cool collections and resources that is available to you, with no charge.

There are not many places like that in the world anymore! 

Libraries provide access to learning opportunities, like how to use Ozobots to identify the best pokémon in the Galar Region! The best part of library services to kids is that they are created with YOU in mind! The same goes for the books, movies, music, and games in our collections. We curate them based on what you like and what you are looking for. 

The library is YOUR space! It is your resource to use to learn, create, play, and explore!

How can I get a library card?

There are two ways that you can get a library card. 

1. Go the library nearest you and register for a card at the main circulation desk. You will need to bring two very important items with you:

  • A grown-up that you live with and is your main caregiveGet carded at the Newfoundland and Labrador Public Libraries! Discover the joys of your local library. Get the card- it's freer. They have to sign for your card if you are under 13 years of age. 
  • A piece of ID. For kids this usually means your health card or social insurance number.

2. Register online.
