Library Online


If you would like to register for new library membership, browse our library catalogue, request an item or renew an item already on loan, please visit Library Online.

Visit Library Online to log in or register. 

Library Online also offers members of our library service free access to a range of websites including British Standards Online, Oxford Dictionary of National Biography, Grove Music Online, Who's Who, Encyclopaedia Britannica Online, Zinio emagazines and eBooks from Overdrive.

As a member or a guest

You will be able to search our online catalogue for books, CDs, DVDs and talking books (spoken word).

As a member

You can:

  • Reserve items you find on the catalogue.
  • Renew items you currently have on loan. If there is a problem - for example an item is wanted by another user - the system will tell you that it cannot be renewed.
  • Record (or change) your email address - we can then inform you of the availability of requested items and send you an electronic reminder as soon as items you have on loan become overdue.
  • Book one of our public access internet PCs in any of our libraries.
  • Download eBooks and Magazines
  • Find out when and where the mobile library stops

Happy reading!
