How to get a library card

Anyone who is a resident in Perth, Tay Valley, North Elmsley/Drummond and Lanark Highlands Townships can get a library card at our Library for free.


  1. Visit us in person and show valid ID. 
  2. We will create an account for you and provide with your login credentials for your online library account
  3. Every two years your card will expire.  At that time you will show your ID and we will ensure we have the most up-to-date contact information in your file.

Please Note:

  1. All outstanding fines must be paid before library cards can be renewed.

Due to COVID-19, we can issue a temporary 3-month membership so that you can access our online databases.  This can be done via email, messenger or over the phone.
