Library Cards

Library cards are free to Yukon residents. To get a library card, visit your local library and bring proof of residency (for example, a driver's license or equivalent ID). Your library card is valid at all Yukon Public Libraries.

Children and youth under grade nine can get a library card with consent and signature from a parent or guardian. The parent or guardian is responsible for all materials borrowed on all cards they have signed for as well as charges for overdue, lost or damaged items.
