Library Stuff

How do I join the library and how much does it cost?

If you are a Bruce County Resident, you can become a member free of charge by completing a library card application at any of our 17 Branch Library locations. Children under the age of 14 must have the signature of a parent or guardian to obtain a Bruce County Public Library Card.

Once you get your library card you can borrow lots of stuff like:

  • Books
  • Movies
  • Music
  • Video Games
  • Audio Books
  • And you can access our online homework resources from home!

Did we mention it’s FREE?

We also offer FREE events such as:

  • Story Time
  • LEGO Club
  • Drop in crafts and other maker activities
  • Summer Reading Club
  • Movie showings


Plus, you can use the computers at the Library to:

  • Check email
  • Surf the internet
  • Explore the Library’s homework help resources and website.
  • Use Office software to help with schoolwork
  • Play a variety of fun online games


Is there a catch?

Only one – You have to bring the stuff back!

Most items may be borrowed for 3 weeks with the following exceptions:
2 weeks for High Demand books
1 week for DVDs (some 3 week sets)

Renewals are possible and may be done by phone, in person, or on-line (unless someone else has requested the item you have out) All Branch Libraries provide an after-hours book return. There are fees for overdue items, so please don’t forget to return your library items!
