Get a Library Card

Register for a library card online to access all of our online resources! Click the 'application form' button below and a librarian will contact you with your new library card number. Your phone number is required to receive your library card number. Once the library re-opens, you can pick up your card in person with a picture ID and begin to borrow physical library materials. 

Note: If you already have a library card registered at the North Vancouver City Library, you can access our digital resources immediately. This application form is for brand new library cards.

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.
