Join the Library

To make use of our services and facilities, you’ll need to become a library member. 
Our membership form is available to complete online (,  however it is not necessary as forms are available to complete when you arrive at the Library Enquiry Desk, where we can explain to you in person about the library facilities AND add 24/7 library access.  Just pop in with your NHS ID card and holder and we will attach your library barcode to the back, so there’s no need to carry two cards around.

If you’d like a tour of the library or an explanation of our services, please ask, and we’ll be happy to provide one.
