Membership Information

Membership to Thorold Public Library is free to every person who resides in the Niagara Region. A membership card is required to borrow materials and must be presented each time that you wish to take resources out of the library.

Adult Membership

An adult membership is available for persons fourteen years of age or over. A membership card can be obtained by completing a Thorold Public Library membership application form. You will also be required to show two pieces of current and valid identification, one of which shows your current address.

Children’s Membership

Children under the age of fourteen are encouraged to become members of the library and to use their own library cards. Application for membership must be made on a child’s behalf by a parent or guardian. The identification of the parent or guardian will be used as proof of address. By signing and completing the application form the parent or guardian agrees to accept all responsibility for materials borrowed by their children.


All cards are valid for a period of one year. Membership will be renewed providing the member presents the expired library card, validation of current address, and has no outstanding fines or charges.
