FSJPL membership is free for those who reside within Fort St John and Area (Peace River Regional District Areas B and C).

Acceptable Forms of ID to Sign Up/Renew/Change Address

To sign you up for a card please bring a piece of government issued photo ID and current proof of your street address. If your ID does not show your current address please additionally bring one of the following with a current date attached:

  • Official rental/lease agreement
  • Utility bill (with a street address, not just a mailing address)
  • Property tax bill from the most current year

Limited Access Accounts

If you can’t make it into the library, are new to the area, or currently do not have ID, we can arrange for a Limited Access card to get you started. You will be allowed to check out two books and 1 DVD at a time on this type of account, but at any point you can bring in official ID to upgrade to a full account.

Please call or email our Circulation Desk during our business hours  ( 250-785-3731 or email us ) to sign up for a Limited Access card. We will need your name, mailing address, phone number, and/or email address.

Library card holders’ rights and responsibilities

You are responsible for all the materials borrowed on your card and for any charges on items that are overdue, lost or damaged. (See Loan Periods and Fines for details). Your library card provides access to licensed databases from outside the library. You may also look at our catalogue from home over the Internet, and access your account to place holds, keep lists and renew items.

Lost or stolen cards

If you lose your library card, you are responsible for any items checked out on your card.You must report it as lost immediately and we will block the card so that no one can use it. There may be a small charge to replace a lost card.

Change of address or password

It is important for us to have your current information. If you change your address or other personal information, contact the library and we’ll update your record. An address change will require proof of address to be shown in person. You may change your password to any combination of letters and numbers as long as the password is between 3-12 characters long.
