Online Library Card Application

Online Card Application

Before registering for a library card, please review the following terms for use of library services and equipment:

PLEASE NOTE: At this time, online registration is available ONLY to residents living within our service area of Cape Breton County and Victoria County. Nova Scotia residents living outside our service area can obtain a library card by visiting one of our twelve branches or our bookmobile and applying in person.

If you provide us with an email address, we will send you an email with your library card number.


Applications must be processed manually by library staff. Your new CBRL library card will be mailed to you following successful registration in our system. If you provide an e-mail address your library card number will be e-mailed to you as soon as your application is processed.

Submitting an incomplete registration form may result in the delay or disqualification of your application.



If you already have a card but it has expired or you need help with your pin contact us at info@cbrl.ca or 902-565-6359.
