How to access the online library

Anyone can use the online library to search nearly two hundred thousand items. However, to access the full range of services listed here, you need to be a library member and have your own PIN (Personal Identification Number) to avoid anyone else accessing your account.

Simply send an email with your name, address and postcode, and we will send you a membership number and pin.

If you would like full membership to access all the libraries have to offer, you will also need to drop into your local branch with identification that proves your name and address.
