You will need to show a photo ID (for example, your B.C. services card) and proof of your current address (for example, a utility bill) when you get a North Vancouver City Library card.

How to get a library card

In person

Visit the Welcome Desk on the first floor to sign up for a card.


If you live on the North Shore or in Metro Vancouver, you can access our digital collections and ebooks right now with a digital card! Your physical card will be held at the Welcome Desk for you to pick up.

Who can get a library card

The library card is free for North Shore residents, students living with North Shore residents and residents of all InterLINK communities.

When you join North Vancouver City Library, you can receive a new City Library card or use an existing card from another InterLINK library.

For residents living outside the InterLink communities of the Lower Mainland, the following fees apply:

  • $50 annual fee for adults for a non-resident card.
  • $25 annual fee for students for a non-resident card.
  • $20 for temporary visitor cards, which are valid for three months.

North Vancouver City Library is part of the BC OneCard program.

Access cards

If you do not have an address or picture ID, you can register for an access card in order to use library materials. Access cards are valid for six months. Visit the Welcome Desk for details on how to get an access card and start using library services today.
