Register for a Library Card

    We’re so glad you decided to register for a library card! It’s the key to unlocking a whole world of opportunities to learn, grow and achieve your goals. Your library card can be used at any public library in the province, and you’ll need it for all of your library transactions. 

    We have two types of library accounts available through online registration – choose the one that’s right for you and fill out the form to get started.  


    Standard Library Account

    Use this form to register for a standard library account that you can use immediately to access everything RPL has to offer, including programs and digital services, materials like books, movies, music, and so much more!

    This card is a great option if you:

    • Are a Regina resident,
    • Are 18 years or older,
    • Have not had a public library card in Saskatchewan before, and
    • Want long-term access to a wide variety of library services.

    If you fill out this form, your address and personal information will go through an online verification process (not a credit check) to confirm your identity, and that you are a Regina resident.

    Once you’ve registered successfully, we’ll email you an RPL barcode that you can use to log in to digital services, and as a digital card that’s accessible on your smartphone or tablet. 

    If you’d like a physical library card, visit any of our branches during regular business hours and we'll print one for you. 


    Short-Term Library Account

    If you’re new to Regina, just moved into a new place, or are concerned you may not pass the online verification process, use this form to register for a short-term library account. 

    This account will give you fast, short-term access to some basic library services, so you can place a few items on hold to borrow, register for programs, reserve a meeting room or book resources in our Digital Media Studio.

    Choose this card if:

    • You are a Regina resident,
    • You have not had a public library card in Saskatchewan before,
    • Your registration for a standard library account was not successful.

    Once you complete this form, we’ll email you a temporary barcode that you can use immediately. Your barcode will expire after 30 days if it isn't upgraded by completing our in-person verification process. Visit any RPL location within 30 days to confirm your identity and that you are a Regina resident. Be sure to bring: 

    • A piece of photo identification, and
    • A document that shows proof of Regina residency, like a utility or phone bill with your name and Regina address on it.

    Already have a library card?

    If you already have a library card from any public library in Saskatchewan, you don’t need to register for another one. Yours will work at any public library in the province!

    Lost your library card? Visit any of our branches and we’ll print you a new one.

    If your card is expired or you need your PIN reset, we’re happy to help! Call our hotline at 306.777.6000, email, or visit us at any of our locations.

    Children’s and Specialty Library Cards

    We also offer library cards for children, and cards for teachers, people living with print disabilities and other community members who require access to specialty library services. 

    If you would like to register your children for a library card of their own, or learn more about specialty library cards, please visit a branch, contact us at 306.777.6000 or for assistance during regular business hours.

    Non-Regina Residents

    If you don’t live in Regina, please contact your local Saskatchewan public library for assistance with getting a library card.
