Common questions

    How do I get a library card?

    If you don’t have a library card and want to register for online programs, place holds on materials, or access digital services, visit any RPL location to sign up or fill out our online registration form to get a temporary barcode by email. 

    You can then visit any RPL location to complete your registration and receive a permanent library card.

    Trouble filling out the form? You can contact our Hotline and staff will gladly assist you in filling out the form. The Hotline is available during regular business hours

    Prefer to sign up in person? No problem! Staff members at any RPL location would be happy to assist you.

    I forgot my PIN! Can you reset it?

    If you have an email address on file with us, you can reset your own PIN.

    Don't have an email address on file with us? No problem! Contact us via any of the methods listed on this page and we will be happy to assist you! Please have your library card and identification nearby as we will ask you verification questions to protect the security of your account.

    I have a library card but when I try to use some of your digital services it tells me that I'm not allowed to access it - why?

    Do you live or pay taxes in the city of Regina? If not, you should be using the digital services found on your home library system's website. Access to many digital services is not shared between different library systems around the province of Saskatchewan.

    You can switch to your home library system's website or you can contact us using one of the methods given at the right of this page to verify the information on your library account.

    How do I pay outstanding fines on my card?

    Note that items that are kept 30 days past the due date are automatically charged a replacement fee. These fees can be paid online with a Visa or Mastercard

    If an item is returned in good condition within six (6) months of the payment date, with the original receipt, a refund for the replacement fee will be provided.

    Why can’t I see what number I am in the hold queue?

    Holds are not filled in a purely numeric order. They are filled in a way that ensures that customers of a library system get first access to items owned by that library system.  

    For example, you may be the seventh person in the queue, but if you are the only RPL customer waiting, and a copy owned by RPL is checked in, you will receive it next. Because of this it is virtually impossible to create an accurate record of where any particular customer is in the queue.
