To get a library card, just bring in two pieces of identification the library, one showing your name and photo, and one showing your street and/or mailing address. Examples of acceptable identification include a driver’s license, a BC ID card, a BC Services card, a status card, a passport, or even a piece of mail addressed to you.
Children of all ages are welcome to have their own cards, or parents/caregivers may request a family membership and sign out items for the whole family on their card. If you wish to get a library card for your child, you will need to provide the same identification as listed above. You will be responsible for all items checked out on your child’s card. Once a child turns 14 their member status changes from juvenile to adult.
Members of other BC libraries may be eligible for a BC OneCard, which would give you borrowing privileges at Hazelton District Public Library.
Non-residents who aren’t eligible for a BC OneCard can purchase a temporary library card for $10.00, which is valid for 6 months.
Library cardholders’ rights and responsibilities
You are responsible for all the materials borrowed on your card and for any charges on items that are overdue, lost or damaged. (See Loan Periods and Fines for details). Your library card provides access to licensed databases from outside the library. You may also look at our catalogue from home over the Internet, and access your account to place holds, keep lists and renew items.
Lost or stolen cards
If you lose your library card, you are responsible for any items checked out on your card. Please report it as lost immediately and we will block the card so that no one can use it. The cost to replace a lost card is $2.00.
