To register for a library card, you will need a piece of photo ID (e.g. driver's licence) plus, if necessary, something that shows your current address (e.g. a utility bill mailed to your name and current address). Parents can register their children, but must sign the back of the card for them.
The library card is free for North Shore residents, foreign students living with North Shore residents, and residents of all InterLINK communities, which covers most Lower Mainland communities. You may also register your existing public library card from another InterLINK community here at our library (please note that licensing requirements for certain products allow those products to be used by North Vancouver residents only).
There is a charge of $3.00 to replace a lost card. There is no charge for a replacement card if the damaged or old card is produced.
For residents living outside the InterLink communities of the Lower Mainland, the following registration fees apply:
- $50 annual fee for adults for a non-resident card
- $25 annual for students for a non-resident card
- $20 for temporary visitor cards, which are valid for three months.
Each customer is permitted only one active library card.
