Get a Library Card

Come join our libraries! Library cards can be obtained free of charge for permanent residents, long-term renters, and property owners on Pender, Mayne, Galiano, Saturna, and Piers islands. Please bring proof of identity and proof of your address.

Do you have a library card from a BC library? Bring your card in to our libraries and you may be eligible for a BC OneCard, a province-wide lending program between BC libraries.

Library card holders’ rights and responsibilities

You are responsible for all the materials borrowed on your card and for any charges on items that are overdue, lost or damaged. (See Loan Periods and Fines for details). Your library card provides access to licensed databases, when available, from outside the library. You may also look at our catalogue from your home computer via the Internet, and access your account to place holds, keep a list of books checked out, and renew items.

Lost or stolen cards

If you lose your library card, come in to the library for a new one. Replacement cards are free, with the exception of a $5 fee charged at the Saturna Is. Library. You are responsible for any items checked out on your card.
