Online Library Card Sign Up

Sign up below for a temporary WBRL library card - your connection to limitless possibilities!

Once submitted, we will create your account and email you your barcode and PIN, usually within 2 business days.

An online card gives you access to all WBRL online resources for one month and allows you to place holds on items in WBRL's collection.  

To check out items, come into the library and swap your online card for a resident card. We will need to verify your address; please bring photo ID and proof of address in the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo. If you are 15 and under, you'll need to bring a parent or guardian with you.

*Please note: Online card registration is only available to patrons with a Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo address. If you are a cardholder at another Alberta public library, sign up to use WBRL through ME Libraries
