Get a Library Card for the Rideau Lakes Public Library

Membership is FREE! Library cards are available to permanent residents and cottagers of Rideau Lakes. Children 14 and under require parental consent before being assigned a library card.

Visit any of our five branches to register for a library card. You will be asked for verification of your Township address so please bring a driver’s license, mail or something that confirms your identity and address.

If you reside outside the Township but own property, work or go to school in the Township you also qualify for free membership. Please bring documentation to support this.

You must bring your library card every time you wish to borrow library resources or use the computers. All patron membership records are confidential.
