Your Library Card

Your Library card is the key!

A Library card is FREE for residents of Mississauga or those who work or attend school or own property in Mississauga.   You can use your valid card to borrow materials from any of the 18 Mississauga libraries.  To get a Library card, bring in identification with your name and address on it. Always have your card with you and ready to use. If any changes occur, such as a change of name, address or phone number, please tell staff right away. If you are a non-resident, bring proof of employment or attendance at a school in Mississauga.  Fees are charged for lost, damaged, forgotten or stolen cards.
