All of our library buildings are currently closed due to COVID19. If you are not already a library member, you can join online. Once you've completed the registration form, you will be given a temporary library card number, which you will be able to use to access all of our online resource.

Once our libraries reopen, we will post out physical library cards to you if you live in the borough, or you will be able collect them from a library if you live outside the borough.


You can join online or in person at any borough library; to borrow audio visual items, you need to show us proof of your address on a current bank statement, utility bill, driving licence or medical card.

  • If you join online and live in the borough, we will send out your membership card.
  • If you join online and live out of the borough, please specify which borough library you would like to collect your membership card from.
