Joining

How to join

Everyone is welcome to join the library and it’s free! You can join online, or by filling in an application form at your local library.

Join the library online

If you'd rather join in person, you can visit your local library and a member of staff will help you to complete an application form. You'll need to supply proof of name and address (for example,  a driving licence, utility bill, bank statement or letter from an official authority/organisation). Under 13s will need someone over 18 to sign their form.

Your library card

Once you receive your library card, you can:

Borrowing

You can borrow up to 15 items at a time. Most books and CDs are loaned for 4 weeks.

Find out more about our current fees and charges.

Renewing

If you do not return items on time, you may be charged a small fine.

If you have a PIN you may renew your items online. Items in demand, and other special loans may not always be renewable.

You can set a PIN online if you have an email address registered on your account or visit your local library to set one.

Reserving items

A reservation service is available at all libraries.
