Join the library now >

Adults can now join the library online and access the Digital Library Service by providing just a few basic details, including your email address.

Join at one of our libraries as an adult

To join at a Perth & Kinross library, visit your local library or a mobile library.  You can join immediately with proof of address, or you can fill in a simple application form.

Join as a child

Collect an application form from your local library and ask a parent or guardian to fill it in and sign it. We will ask to see something with the adult’s name and address on it, for example a driving licence or a rent book.

Completed application forms

Once we have your completed application, a card will be made up for you and you can start borrowing items straight away. If we also have proof of your identity (see below) you will get full library membership with increased access to the public computers, free Wi-Fi (for adult users) and you can borrow even more items.

You can also use your card and PIN to access a wide variety of free online resources, including e-books and e-audio books.

Proof of identity

It is important that you bring along a proof of identity when joining at one of our libraries.

You can do this by bringing in some official documentation with your name and address on it. This might be, for example, an original Council Tax Bill, or a gas, electricity or telephone bill. It could also be a bank statement, or a driving licence.

The need to have proof of identity is a security measure and is intended to help us protect our stock. By protecting the stock we can ensure that there is always a good choice for you when you visit.
