Virtual Library Card Application

The virtual library card is exclusively for the use of online content offered by the Elgin County Library. Your library card is free:

  • If you are a resident of Elgin County or St. Thomas.
  • If you are a member of a neighbouring public library system.

Please note: if you currently have an existing library card with Elgin County Library, you have full access to all online content and are not eligible for a virtual library card.

  1. Fill out the form below to apply for a virtual library card.
  2. Once submitted, your application will be processed by library staff. 
  3. A welcome package will be sent in the mail to you, and it will include your new virtual library card.
  4. You should receive your welcome packet within 7 working days of your application submission.
