Library Online


Use Library Online to join the library, browse our library catalogue, request an item or renew an item already on loan.

With Library Online you get 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, emagazines, eaudiobooks and ebooks.

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, eaudiobooks and emagazines.
  • Find out when and where the mobile library stops.

Happy reading!
