Online Card Registration

Register online for a temporary card number. Once you complete the registration, we’ll email you a temporary library card number (barcode) that you can use immediately. It is valid for thirty days, allowing you to place holds using the online catalogue or through the SILS app. Before your temporary card expires, please visit any Saskatoon library location with valid identification and proof of address to receive your permanent library card.

For kids 13 years old and under, a Parent or Guardian is required to give permission to register for a library card. Please enter your name in the “Parent’/Guardian” field to give your permission for your child to have a library card.

Teens 14 and older can use the signature of a parent or guardian as a form of identification, but an adult signature is not required. We also accept student cards, driver’s license, SGI issued photo ID and passports as proof of identity.

Questions About Getting a Library Card

When you come to the library to get your card, you will need a piece of personal identification and proof of your Saskatoon address. A piece of identification that includes your address (such as a driver’s license) will meet both requirements.

For ID Purposes

  • Driver’s license
  • Passport
  • Nexus card
  • Student card
  • Military ID
  • Government ID card
  • Treaty card or Metis card
  • Landed immigrant card
  • Business/Employer photo ID (preferably with identifying number)

For proof of address:

  • Personal cheque
  • Driver’s license
  • Utility bill or other government correspondence that shows the current address
  • Letter/envelope with cancelled postage showing current address

Teens can use the signature of a parent or guardian as a form of identification. Children under 14 years of age must have a parent or guardian sign the application form.

Your PIN is the last four digits of your phone number, unless you have changed it.

You can change your PIN online at any time. Simply log into your My SPL account and click Settings. You can also change your PIN at the service desk of any library or by calling any SPL location. If you have forgotten your PIN, click on the “forgot PIN” link on the login page.

Library cards expire 3 years after they are issued. You will receive a notification 2 weeks in advance. You can come in to any library building, phone any library, or email us at [email protected]. Please have your ID and current contact information ready.
