SPL library card stuck in the stacks

Visitor Cards

Visitors and out-of-town guests can still enjoy our Library with a Visitor Pass or reciprocal borrowing account. Get computer access easily with a Computer Access Card.


Visitor Cards

If you don't live in Perth County, or in one of reciprocal borrowing municipalities, you can still enjoy access to books, audiobooks, DVD's, and other materials in the Stratford Public Library's physical collection.

Visit the library to register for a visitor library card.  There is a $7 monthly fee.

Reciprocal Borrowing

Reciprocal borrowing allows library customers from participating communities to receive borrowing privileges at our location. Communities included in this agreement are Huron County, Oxford County (with the exception of Woodstock), Region of Waterloo (with the exception of Kitchener, Waterloo, and Cambridge), Middlesex County (with the exception of London) and Wellington County (with the exception of Guelph). There is no fee for reciprocal borrowing cards. 

Residents of communities in the reciprocal borrowing agreement are welcome to get a Stratford Public Library card by coming in with a piece of identification with their address (ie. driver's license, age of majority card). Stratford Public Library cardholders can also go into any of these libraries with their identification and their SPL library card to obtain a library card at that location.

Computer Only Cards
