You can join the library either in person or online.
If you join in a library branch, you will need to bring in ID, showing your name and current address, and you will receive your card right away.
If you join online, you will be issued a temporary, 3 month membership giving you immediate access to our online resources and computers.
Please note: To continue using Kingston Libraries' services after signing up online, you will need to visit one of our library branches with ID showing your name and current address.
If you are under 18, a parent or legal guardian will need to sign for the card on your behalf to borrow from the library. This person is the guarantor on the card and will be asked to present ID showing their current address. If you are 16 or 17, you can sign yourself up for an Internet only library card that also gives you access to our online resources.
