Borrowing Library Materials

Library cards for students

If you are planning to have each student borrow items from the library, please make sure that everyone in your group has a library card. If not, please take a moment to read through the Library's Get a Library Card page for information on eligibility and requirements. You can also download a membership application form (English/French).

When you are booking a class visit, please notify staff if you will be applying in advance for library cards. It is important that the completed forms are delivered to the hosting branch one week before your visit, so that each applicant's form can be processed in time. We cannot process forms on the day of your visit.
