Lakeland Library Region residents

You can apply for a library card at the Library Branch nearest to your home at no charge or print and fill out the application form from the link below, and take it to your home branch. Please bring photo ID with proof of current address to register for your library card.

Library cards can be issued to people of any age. If you are under 14 years of age you will need to have your parent or guardian present to sign the registration form and accept responsibility for all use made of the card.

Your library card can be used at any public library in Saskatchewan.

A Library card must be used by the person to whom it is issued and be presented each time you borrow materials. You are responsible for all items borrowed on your card until you notify the Library that your card is lost.

Please contact the library immediately if you lose your card or change your address or telephone number. A charge of $3.00 is made for replacing a lost or stolen card.

Not from a Lakeland community?

Non-residents of Saskatchewan may be eligible for service — staff at the your branch can provide the most current information.

Please let library staff know if you lose one or both parts of your card. There will be a $3 charge to replace lost or stolen cards. You must show photo ID at the front desk to get a replacement card.

Your card will be renewed once a year. Please let us know if you change your contact information, including your phone number, mailing address, and email address. An address check is done once every three years.

Saskatchewan works on a One Province, One Card system. This means:

  • You can use your Saskatchewan public library card to borrow items from any public library in the province.
  • You may also return items you have borrowed to any public library throughout Saskatchewan.
