Turn your smartphone into your library card!

Do you carry your smart phone more than your wallet these days? Me too.  I'm always forgetting my library card at home, and usually when I need it the most. The good news is that as of today, you can use your smartphone as your library card! It’s simple when you use Key Ring - an app that allows you to consolidate your reward and membership cards from libraries, stores, and other businesses onto your smartphone. It's free and can be set up in minutes.

Here's what you need to do to get started.
  1. Install the free Key Ring app on your smartphone.
  2. Open the app.
  3. Select Add Card from the main menu.
  4. Select No Barcode and then search for Stratford Public Library.
  5. Enter your 14 digit library card number and tap Create Card.
  6. Visit Stratford Public Library and try it today!
The first time you use this service at the library, you will be asked to present some ID so be sure you have something with you.  While you can use your Stratford Public Library card at the St. Marys, West Perth and Perth East Public Libraries, digital barcodes are currently only being accepted at the Stratford Public Library. 

If you have any questions, please let us know!
