How to Join the Port Colborne Public Library

Library cards are available free of charge to any resident or property owner of the City of Port Colborne. Two pieces of valid identification are required, one of which must contain the applicant’s name and current address.

Online Registration – Complete the Online library card application form to get a temporary account and PIN. Use this account to place holds on Library items, then visit the Library, with your identification, to finalize your membership.

Memberships are also free for non-residents who reside in the Southern Ontario Library Service Escarpment Service Area and who present two pieces of valid identification at time of registration. Four-month temporary memberships (at a cost of $10.00) are available to non-residents whose permanent address is outside the Escarpment area.

Parents/legal guardians must be present at time of registration of a child (under 16 years of age) and are responsible for all items borrowed on the child’s card.

Please notify the library of any change in address or telephone number. Lost or stolen cards must be reported to the library immediately. A $4.00 charge for replacement cards applies.
