Get a library card

If you wish to get a library card, we'll be happy to sign you up for one at the Welcome Desk on the first floor of the library. Please bring photo ID and proof of your current address.

You can also apply for a card online by clicking the "application form" button below and filling in the form. If you apply online you will be able to use our digital collections immediately, but you will have to come to the library to pick up the physical card. You will need to show proof of ID and proof of current address when picking up the card

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.
