Sign Up for a Library Card

Free library membership is available to Bowen Island residents or taxpayers, and to anyone living in the Lower Mainland. To receive a Bowen Island Library card you need to register in the library with picture identification and proof of your mailing address

Library card holders’ 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

Please report the loss of your library card to the library immediately. Our phone number is 604-947-9788 or you can email us.

Replacement Card: $2.00

Change of address or password

It is important for us to have your current information. If you change your address or other personal information, contact the library and we’ll update your record.

To change your PIN number, log in to your account, click on the "Account Preferences" tab, and change your password. We do not recommend that patrons use a 4 digit number as their password.  4 digit numbers should only be used for temporary passwords and should be changed to something more secure after the account is created.
