Join the Library

Library membership is free and anyone can join.

To become a library member you must produce proof of your current address for example a driver's license, rates notice, pension card or bill. We also ask that you provide an alternative contact address. If you are under the age of 18 years old a parent or guardian's signature is required.

If you are over 18 you can join online and start borrowing ebooks, emagazines, and eaudiobooks immediately. Click here to join online
