Apply Online for a Public Library Card

Library Card


If you are a resident of Prince Edward Island, you can get a PEI Public Library Card for free. With a library card, you can borrow any item in our collection, use our public access computers and access our digital collections from your home.

  • When you apply for an adult or child’s public library card online, a temporary card will be mailed to your home.
  • Contact any public library within 30 days of receiving your new card to confirm your membership.
  • If you are under the age of 16, your parent or guardian must register on your behalf.
  • Please note that it can take up to 10 days after you submit your online application before you receive your library card in the mail.

What do I need to complete the online library card application?

You will be asked to provide the following:

  • Your full name and contact information
  • Your agreement to the disclaimers and privacy statements 
  • The name and phone number of your parent or guardian, if you are under the age of 16
  • Please indicate which public library will be your home library branch. This location will be your default location for hold pick-ups.
