We will give you a library card - if at a later date you change your name, address or phone number please tell us so we can keep our records up to date.

There are different loan periods for different items. There are also limits to the amount of items you can borrow at any time:
Children over 8 years of age can be unaccompanied and join the library to borrow two books (no CDs) without a parent's signature. For full borrowing rights, they must hand in an Application for Membership with a parent's signature.
Children under 8 years of age can join the library with a parent's signature - they should always be accompanied in the library. We need a completed Application for Membership, which can be provided in person or printed from the download links and returned to the library.
There is no minimum age for children to join the library. We don't need proof of address if you are under 16, but a parent or carer must sign the form before you can borrow any items.
This library ticket will allow childminders to borrow:
from their local library, to help the children in their care enjoy and learn throughout their day.
To get a special ticket you will need to take your registration certificate or a copy of it to the library.
