How do I get a Library card?
Library cards are free to all people who live in or own property with a mailing address in Taylor. Please apply in person, with 2 pieces of identification. Identification must provide your name, signature and current address.
Once you have read and understood the ‘Statement of Responsibility’, you will be issued a Library Card. Children under the age of 14 do not require proof of address, but must have permission from their parent or legal guardian to obtain a library card. This parent or guardian must be present at time of library card application.
Parents are responsible for activity on a child’s card who is under the age of 19. A parent or legal guardian must also give approval for internet use for children under 16.
What can I do with my Library card?
Your Library card entitles you to borrow all forms of eligible items (books, audio/video materials, periodicals, as well as use of our free internet service). The general borrowing period for books is 21 days. There are variances to the borrowing period for New Editions and other items.
Your Taylor Public Library card is also valid within the Peace Region including Chetwynd, Dawson Creek, Fort St. John, Hudson’s Hope, Fort Nelson, Tumbler Ridge and Pouce Coupe. Their local policies apply. It will also be accepted as your Home Card within the province of BC, making you eligible for BC OneCard service. Each library's local policies apply to this service.
