Getting a Library Card

All residents of Edson and Yellowhead County are eligible for a library card. All you need to register is a piece of photo ID. Residents under 18 years of age must have a parent or guardian present at the time of registration.

If you lose your library card please contact the library immediately to avoid the unauthorized use of your library card.
