  • Library cards are free if you live or pay property or business taxes in the City of Winnipeg.
  • To get a card, download a membership application form (English / French), fill it out and hand it in at any branch. Membership application forms are also available at any branch in the system.
  • You will be asked to show acceptable identification. (What is acceptable identification?). If you live in Winnipeg, but you have no ID, you can still get a library card - it will be a limited card allowing you to borrow up to 2 items at a time instead of 50. All other benefits of a library card apply. You can update your limited card to a full card at any time by showing acceptable identification.
  • Parents or guardians of children and young adults 17 years and under must sign their children’s library membership application.
  • If you share custody of a child, please ask at your local branch about our Juvenile Joint Custody membership cards.

Cards for Groups or Classes

  • If you plan to visit a library with a group and wish to apply for individual library cards, please contact the branch you will be visiting. Be sure to allow for adequate time for cards to be processed, either in advance of your visit or while at the library.
