Get a Free Library Card

Residents who reside within the limits of North Grenville may obtain a FREE NGPL Membership Card any branch of the North Grenville Public Library. Each member of the household receives their own card. Those applying for membership must present identification with a current address.

A library membership card is valid for two years from the date of issue and entitles the cardholder to a full range of services and materials available from the North Grenville Public Library.

Patrons are expected to present their cards at the circulation desk when signing out library materials. A maximum of 25 items may be borrowed on a card at any given time. Your 14-digit library card number and your 4-digit PIN give access to materials and services available through the website. Report a stolen library card immediately. Replacement cards are available for a $2.00 replacement charge.


Non-resident memberships are available to persons residing outside of North Grenville. Memberships are valid for one year from the date of issue and entitle the cardholder to the full range of services and materials.

Effective May 1, 2015:

  • Individual Fee: $40.00
  • Household Fee: $60.00
