Anybody can get a public library card! If you live in a northern Saskatchewan community with a public library, you can register for a library card directly from your local public library.
If you DO NOT live in a community with a public library, you can also sign up at your local school library, download and print a library card registration form here, or contact our office to have one mailed, faxed or emailed directly to you!
We also have an online registration form for temporary public library cards, which are good for three (3) months and can be upgraded to permanent library cards upon your visit to a local public library or to PNLS Headquarters. We recommend this option for any new patrons who wish to access online resources during the COVID-19 pandemic.
