Get a Library Card

Permanent residents may join the library free of charge with proof of residency.

Members of other BC libraries may be eligible for a BC OneCard, which would give them borrowing privileges at Taylor Public Library. Some libraries will accept the “home” library card as a BC OneCard.

Non-residents who aren’t eligible for a BC OneCard can purchase a temporary library card for $10.00, which is valid for 6 months.


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 from outside the library. You may also look at our catalogue from home over the Internet, and access your account to place holds, keep lists and renew items.

Lost or stolen cards

You are responsible for any items checked out on your card, so If you lose your library card, you must report it as lost immediately and we will block the card so that no one can use it. There is a small charge to replace a lost card.

Change of address or password

It is important for us to have your current information. If you change your address or other personal information, contact the library and we’ll update your record.

Register Online

The Taylor Public Library is now providing online registration to access our digital resources. If you are a Taylor resident, you can now become a library card holder by registering through our online form. Each person can register for one active library card.

Please note that this temporary card gives you access to most of our online digital resources. Please come into the library and we will provide instructions to validate and receive your permanent card.

Please find the “Request Library Card” on the catalogue’s search page at the bottom (in the footer section).
