Yes, absolutely! If you wish to bring a child to the library on behalf of the child's parent/legal guardian and sign them up for their own library card, you are welcome to do so.

  • Download a membership application form (English / French), have the parent fill it out and sign it and bring the application form with you when you visit the branch. Printed membership application forms can also be picked up at any branch in the system.
  • If ID with the child's address cannot be shown, the child will receive a "limited" card, allowing them to borrow two Library items at a time (instead of the usual 50). All other benefits of a library card apply. 
  • Parents/guardians can upgrade limited cards to full memberships at any time in the future simply by bringing the child's card to a service counter and showing ID (see What is acceptable identification?).
