Library Membership

Patrons of all ages can register for a Hinton Municipal Library membership in person or remotely by phone or online.

Register Online

Completing the remote library registration form will allow you to access library resources temporarily for 2 months. We will need you to visit us in person to pick up your physical library card and show a piece of government ID with your Hinton or Yellowhead County address listed. At that time, we can change your membership to a full-year standard access account.
