Get a card ONLINE!
Have you been wanting to sign up for a GPPL membership during the closure? From now until we reopen again, you can sign up for a library card online and have your membership mailed to you! All participants in our Virtual Library Card Drive will be automatically entered into our prize draw, where you could win any of the following:
- 1 of 10 GPPL tote bags
- 1 of 3 runner up prizes (Assortment of GPPL swag and a $10 Amazon gift card)
- 1 Grand Prize of a $250 gift card to a Grande Prairie business of the winner’s choosing.
Addresses must be valid Grande Prairie or County of Grande Prairie addresses. On your first visit to the library, you will be asked to show your ID for verification purposes, and those under 16 will be asked to show proof of parental consent.
Your Library Membership
Your card lets you borrow books, movies, music and more. You also have access to downloadable material such as e-books, magazines, music, newspapers and movies. Because GPPL is part of the Peace Library System, which is a member of The Regional Automation Consortium (TRAC), you have access to over 3 million items.
Your card is for your use only. You must present your card to borrow materials from GPPL.
How to get a GPPL membership
Memberships are free to residents of the City of Grande Prairie, the County of Grande Prairie No.1, the MD of Greenview or an area served by the Peace Library System.
