Join the library

Join at your local library

Pop into any of our 11 local libraries with your proof of ID and ask a member of staff.

If you are over 18 years of age, you will need to take proof of ID such as a Driving Licence or recent utility bill when you visit the library to collect your new membership card.


If you are aged 15 and under you do not need to bring a parent with you to join. You do not need to have proof of identity and we will not ask for a signature from a parent or carer.

You will be asked for -

  • your name
  • home address
  • name of a parent or carer
  • telephone number (if known)
  • your date of birth

Once you have joined you will be given your card immediately and be able to begin borrowing items.
