Membership

COVID-19 Note:

We cannot offer in-person services or physical item borrowing at this time. Please consider getting an eCard (link below) for access to our full range of online offerings.

We are pleased to offer this for FREE during this period of social distancing: the membership rates listed below will NOT be charged for new memberships. After we reopen, all eCards will be eligible for transfer to a membership with full borrowing privileges at all Chinook Arch libraries, for no extra charge. 

Chinook Arch Regional Library System card holders have access to nearly 1,000,000 physical items, over 30,000 downloadable ebooks, audiobooks, and movies, 20,000 digital magazines and newspapers, online courses and research databases.

Items at any library in the system can be delivered to your local library by placing a hold. Items borrowed at one library can be returned at any Chinook Arch member library. Chinook Arch member libraries have varying membership fees, and set their own loan periods, renewal limits, and overdue fines for library materials. 

Visit your local library to sign up for a library card, or sign up for an eCard online!
