Our building may be closed but our online resources are available 24/7! Your Pemberton library card gives you FREE access to loads of digital resources! Check them out here


Don’t have a card? No problem!

Due to the COVID-19 virus and the current closure of the library, we are providing online registration to access our digital resources. If you are a Pemberton or Area C resident you can now become a library card holder by registering through our online form. Each person can register for one active library card.

Please note that this temporary card gives you access to most of our online digital resources.

Place holds on items for pick up at the Library!

Are you running out of things to read? While staff are still able to access the library we would like to help you access our physical collection! Holds can now be placed on items you would like to read or watch.

Holds can be placed two ways:
1. Online through you library account which can be accessed through our catalogue:

2. Send us an email to with your selection/interests and we will do our best to find something to meet your needs.

We will then contact you and arrange a pick up time for you to come and collect your holds.

Please note that your health and safety is our highest priority. We are following strict safe handling techniques when dealing with library items; this includes frequent handwashing, only handling items while using gloves, and also the disinfection and quarantine of returned library items. All library items have been quarantined since March 14th.

These are uncertain times for us and as the situation changes we may need to make adjustments to the service accordingly.

Stay healthy and safe everyone!
