Joining the Library

Joining the library is easy, and what's more... it's free!

How to Join

You can join the library either in person at one of our libraries, or using the Online Registration form - follow the link and click on the "Join the Library" button. You will need to provide proof of your name and address from the list below to be able to use the full range of library facilities. However, you may join as a temporary member if you do not have any of the proofs of address shown below, but this will limit the library services you can use.

Data Protection Act

Data Protection lock  All personal information which members provide when joining the library is subject to the terms of the Data Protection Act. This means that the information will be used only for the administration of library services to our members, or for compiling statistics. These details are only kept if the member is still using the library, therefore if members have stopped borrowing items from the library for a period of more than a year, their details will be deleted. Personal details are not shared with other council departments.
