Download and complete the online registration form (pdf). Fill in the blank spaces, and print page one of the form. Parents need to sign forms for children up to and including grade 8.
Take the completed form into the nearest library branch. Bring along your Ontario driver's licence or two pieces of identification, one with your current address. If you work or go to school but don't live here: bring proof of employment or enrolment. Students may present a student card, YMCA card, birth certificate, current report card, or Social Insurance Number (SIN) card.
When you become a library member, you agree to:
be responsible for the items you borrow
follow the rules, regulations, and policies of Burlington Public Library
Even when a library card is loaned to a friend, or becomes lost or stolen, you are still responsible for items borrowed on your account. Anytime a card is used, we presume the cardholder has permission to use it.
Only the cardholder may make changes to the library account, for example, change of name or address.
