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
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 using it to borrow items straight away. You can also use your card to get a PIN for you to use the public computers or free wi-fi.
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 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.
