Application Form

Canada Post’s Library Materials program allows eligible libraries to ship library materials to other libraries or patrons at special rates. In order to access the Library Rate, libraries must qualify and be authorized. Please complete the application form below. Only one application form is required per organization (branches, campus libraries, or secondary locations do not need to fill out a separate application).

If your library qualifies, you will receive confirmation and if applicable be asked to provide additional information about your branch, campus, or satellite libraries. This information is required in order to utilize the program. You will also be provided with access to Canada Post’s Online Express Order Entry for Library Materials: the Library Shipping Tool.

Effective October 1, 2006, access to the Library Rate will only be available to authorized libraries using approved electronic shipping tools, including the Library Shipping Tool.

I certify that the above information is correct and that I am familiar with the Library Books section of the Canada Postal Guide which can be found on the Canada Post web site at
