The Library offers a few different types of memberships to its patrons. If you are not a resident of the Cariboo Regional District, one of the following membership types may apply.

  • Temporary
  • Non-Resident
  • BC One Card

Temporary Memberships

Temporary Memberships are for patrons who plan to be in the area for 2 – 6 months and are not eligible for BC One Card(generally they are not residents of BC)

Apply for a card at any CRDL branch.  You will need valid picture I.D. and some proof of your current address -- either ID or cancelled mail, cheques, etc – and your permanent address if it is different from the current one. 

Temporary members are limited to 2 items checked out at any one time.  A refundable deposit of $25.00 (cash only) is required to register.

All items must be returned and the card surrendered before obtaining your refund.




Non-Residents

Patrons who reside outside the CRD boundaries may acquire a Library Membership at a cost of $25.00 annually. 

Apply for a card at any CRDL branch.  You will need valid picture I.D. and some proof of your current address -- either ID or cancelled mail, cheques, etc – and your permanent address if it is different from the current one. 

The same card may be used in all CRDL libraries.  Non-Resident members have the same rights and responsibilities as all other Library members.

A library card from your home public library opens the door to public libraries wherever you travel – or stay – in British Columbia.

Don’t leave home without it.

It allows you to check out materials and use services determined by each individual public library.
Check with each library for a list of what it provides. Check your library's website to see what you can use at your library.
