  • Borrowing privileges
  • Free and unlimited access to story times and activities
  • Exclusive access to special events
  • A minimum of 10% discount on Maktaba workshops, camps and special programs.

Membership Fees

Fees are collected annually with the exception of the deposit. The deposit is a one-time fee paid at the time of joining and may be refunded if you choose not to renew your membership. Please note, the deposit is available for refund by member request only and up to one year after your membership expires.

How to Join

Just because children can’t come to the library yet doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy all the benefits of membership including Curbside Pick-up for your books and access to 5 Zoom Story Times and Activities times a week.
