In order to have a card made you will need to present one of the following:

You will not be issued with any library items unless you have your card with you.
Should you lose your card, replacement ID cards cost $5.00.

Can you get library items from other libraries for me?

We may find an alternative in the collection or we can interloan from another library.  Interloan forms are available at the Library Desk or on the display racks by each Library Catalogue computer.  Interloans take, on average, a week to arrive, so please plan ahead when requesting.

 
What is Desk Reference?

Desk Reference is high demand material stored behind the desk. You need to bring your Library card.  You may use only one item from Desk Reference at a time, for a period of up to 4 hours.
