Get a Library Card


If you already have a library card registered at the North Vancouver City Library, then you already have access to both our physical and digital resources, so please enjoy using it onsite and offsite.

For new users who have never had a registered library card from this library, you may apply online for one by clicking on the Application Form button below.  Please note that you will receive a library card number that you can use immediately to access our digital resources, but you'll also need to come in to the library to pick up your physical card and show proof of ID before you can borrow physical materials. If you need help accessing digital resources, please email info@nvcl.ca or chat with us by clicking the "chat with us" icon at the bottom right of the screen.

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.
