Read, watch, listen or learn at any time with your library membership. Here are some tips for discovering our wide range of digital resources and some ways you can manage your library account remotely. 

Not a member of the library? Join online today and we will post you your card. 

Managing your account

You may have noticed a green box in the top right hand corner of our website. This is where you log in to your account online, by using your library card number and PIN. If your PIN isn't working, please send us an email or call us between 9am - 5pm, Monday to Friday.

Once you're logged in, you will see all your current loans and reservations. If you need to renew a loan, simply select the three dots next to the title you would like to renew and select 'Renew Loan'.

Read an eBook or listen to an eAudiobook

From mystery to self-care and everything in between, we have thousands of eBooks and eAudiobooks for you to browse. Simply head to BorrowBox or Overdrive and have a look around. 

You can have up to 10 loans and 10 reservations at the same time on both platforms. All loans are automatically returned so you don't have to worry about due dates. If you have placed a hold in Overdrive but aren't quite ready for it, don't worry. Overdrive have released a new feature that makes sure you get your holds at the right time. We also have a collection of unlimited use titles on both platforms. You can see the BorrowBox collection here and the Overdrive collection here

If you would like to read or listen on your mobile device, download the BorrowBox or Libby by Overdrive app from the App Store of Google Play Store.  

Join an online book club

Get the book club experience online with Big Library Read, a global eBook club facilitated by Overdrive. With a library membership, you can borrow the selected title instantly and connect with other readers from around the world. To participate in Big Library Read on your mobile device, make sure to download the Libby app by Overdrive.

Did we mention that for a limited time, you can watch an unlimited amount of films without reducing your monthly play credits? Yep, we're serious.
