Join in person
You can also join at any of our libraries.
If you would like to use a computer or borrow talking books, cds or dvds you will need to show one form of proof of identity.
Please note for data protection reasons your membership will expire after 18 months, but can be renewed by confirming your details to a member of staff.
What can I borrow?
Up to 12 items from any of the city's libraries. The normal loan period is 3 weeks but you can renew items (in person, by phone, or online) provided that no other user has reserved them. You can borrow from, and return books to, any library.
What else can I do with my library card?
You can use your library membership to download ebooks, audio and emagazines. You also get free access to dozens of web sites and apps you'd have to pay to use otherwise. View a complete list of these sites on the Your Library web site.
Overdue and hire charges
If you are over 16 and do not return an item by its due date you will be charged 15p per item per day. Under 16s and anyone over 60 or claiming benefit can rent CDs and DVDs for half price (30p for CDs and 60p for DVDs).
