Join the Library

Public Libraries are free and open to all.
To join, you will need to present 2 forms of identity - a recent official document showing your current address and photo ID.

Documents such as electricity or gas bills show your address and photo ID can be a passport or Driver's licence.

Young people will need to have permission from their parent or guardian. Parents can join their children from birth.

There is no charge to join the library. You can sign up to receive pre-overdue notices by email 3-4 days before your items are due back.
You will be charged 30c per item per week if you return your books after the due date, but reminders will be emailed or posted to you when your books become overdue.

Detailed answers to your questions about using the library are available in our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ).

You may join online from this site.
