Every resident or tax-payer of the City of Clarence-Rockland is invited to become a Library patron at no charge. Membership is also available to non-residents for a low annual service fee. There is no charge to borrow any of our material and Internet access is free to everyone in the community weather you are a patron of the Library or not. We also offer photocopying, printing and scanning services for a nominal fee.

Come visit one of our branches to become a patron of the Clarence-Rockland Public Library.


Membership is available with the following proof of residency:
1 piece of identification with both a picture and a current Clarence-Rockland home address (ex., driver’s license);


2 pieces of identification: one piece with your name and photo (ex., passport, health card, student card) and one with your name and current Clarence-Rockland home address (ex., personal mail or a bill).

For those who do not have a Clarence-Rockland address, yet pay taxes, a proof of payment (ex., receipt) will need to be shown.


To obtain a card for a child 15 and under a parent or guardian must be present to enroll the child. He or she will need to have their own Library card or provide the same proof of residency as described above. The parent or guardian will need to have some form of identification for the child (ex., health card, passport or student card).

Proof of address will be required every two years to verify your contact information.  Please note proof of address may be requested randomly.

A patron’s Library card and privileges may be confiscated at any time if the patron does not respect the Library’s rules or Code of Conduct.


Your member card identifies you to staff and allows you to borrow library material, as well as grants you access to our services and programs.
If you lose your card, please report it to the Library right away to prevent someone else from borrowing material on your card.

Whether your membership card has been lost or stolen, you must notify the Library as soon as possible. Failure to do so may result in fees for material borrowed on the card and not return or returned damaged.

Membership cards will be replaced at a cost of $5 per card. Please note that a piece of identification is required to obtain a replacement card.
