All Calgary residents can have a free Calgary Public Library card! Library cards are now also free to residents of Fort McMurray, Anzac, Gregiore Lake Estates, and Fort McMurray First Nation.
Cardholders under 18 years of age have limited access on their cards (filtered Internet access and maximum borrowing limit of 10 items) until a parent or guardian approves full access.
Your card is for your use only. Anyone who wants to borrow materials or use other Calgary Public Library services must have his or her own card.
Live outside of Calgary?
You, too, can access the Library’s resources. Please review our FAQs to find out how.
Need cards for your group?
Schools or community groups can order 25 or more free Library cards online.
