How to get a Library Card

Due to the current health climate and closure of the library, the Cochrane Public Library wants to ensure everyone has access to our eResources. Therefore, we are virtually renewing and offering library memberships for FREE for 3 months! Fill out this form and we will be in touch shortly.

Cochrane Public Library members can access the library's various programs and services. Members also have access to thousands of library materials from across the province using our interlibrary loan system.
A valid proof of address is required at the time of registration. Examples include:

  • driver's license
  • rental agreement
  • utility statement

We serve residents living within the City limits of Cochrane and Rocky View County taxpayers that include Elbow Valley, Springbank, Bearspaw, Bragg Creek and Redwood Meadows.
