Do you have a starter membership?

Adult and under-18 customers may have a limited starter membership.

Adult customers without proof of address and under-18 customers without a guardian immediately on hand may wish to apply for a starter card, which can be created without these requirements. However, this form of membership only allows a customer to borrow two items at a time.

Do you have an old library card?

This includes cards from former councils in the Auckland area:

  • Rodney
  • Waitakere
  • North Shore City
  • Auckland City
  • Manukau City
  • Franklin

Try to login to My Info and update your details — then you're good to go.

Contact us to report it missing and, if necessary, find out whether your account is still active. Come into one of our community libraries to get a new card.
