Sign up for adventure with a TRL Library Card!


Take adventures, access resources and learn something new for free with a library card from your local Timberland Regional Library.

Timberland Regional Library (TRL) offers a variety of interesting activities and materials, said Timberland Regional Library Deputy Director Kendra Jones.

“Whether you are diving into a new book or audiobook, spotting an unusual plant or animal in a state park with one of our backpacking kits, or learning a new language, every day can be an adventure,” Jones said.

TRL’s Library of Things offers discovery kits, musical instruments, and assistive devices for checkout. Kits include Discover Plankton kits, NASA Stargazing backpacks, Checkout Washington kits, Environmental Education backpacks, Explore Your Forest backpacks, Birding backpacks and fishing kits. Several kits include a Checkout Washington Discover Pass.

“There are so many great state parks that our patrons can visit with a Discover Pass, and our kits include high quality tools and tons of resources,” Jones said.

Patrons also can find the newest and trending adult and youth books and DVDs in TRL’s Lucky Day Collections. A TRL library card and PIN grant access to thousands of digital audiobooks, eBooks, and digital magazines on the Libby app, as well as streaming movies on Kanopy and Kanopy Kids.

Zoom storytimes, in-person programs, pre-assembled and customized grab bags of books, movies, and music, and take-and-make activity bags for kids are all offered with a TRL library card.

“A TRL library card is also a great resource for learning,” Jones said. “Guardians and educators can access dozens of valuable educational resources online.”

To apply for a library card, visit any one of the 29 TRL libraries to verify your identity and other information. Parents may verify ID and information for minors.

  • Basic card: Verifying ID allows patrons to check out up to 10 items and place 10 items on hold in addition to accessing online resources.
  • Regular card: If a current address is on the patron’s ID, or they supply another form of address verification, they can upgrade to a regular card. This allows patrons to borrow up to 50 items and place 50 items on hold in addition to accessing online resources.
