Get a Library Card

Library cards are free for all residents of Saskatchewan. There are two options for getting a library card!

Option 1: Go to your nearest branch and show us 2 pieces of identification, one of which displays your current address.  Acceptable pieces of ID include (but are not limited to):

  1. Driver’s license
  2. Student card
  3. Passport
  4. Treaty card
  5. Personal cheque book
  6. Cancelled personal mail
  7. Utility bill
  8. Government correspondence

If you’re a Saskatchewan resident but don’t have any pieces of suitable identification, just give us a call at 306-763-8496 and we’ll let you know what you can use to obtain your card.

After we approve your ID and enter your information into our system, we will give you your new card!  The card includes a barcode for us to scan at the library and your 14 digit library card number.  We will then need you to give us a Personal Identification Number (PIN) so you can sign in online.  Make sure it’s something easy for you to remember!

Children under 14 can also get a library card, but they require a guardian’s signature on the application form.  Please note that the guardian is responsible for what his/her children borrow.


Option 2: Register for your card online! Click the Log-in link on the top left hand since of the menu bar. From there click the Register Now link. Or, click or tap here: Register Now to be taken to the start of the registration process.

If you live within Prince Albert’s city limits and pay your taxes to the City of Prince Albert, select Prince Albert – John M. Cuelenaere from the drop down menu. Then enter your postal code.

If you do not pay taxes to the City of Prince Albert and live within one of the nearby RMs select Wapiti – Headquarters from the drop down menu.

Next, you will be taken to a page where you will fill out your personal information. Once you have filled out that information click submit. If you have questions about how to fill in your information please call 306-763-8496 for help.

Once you click submit we will generate the card for you and send you the barcode and PIN for your account via email.
