Join the Library

You can join online if you are 16 or over.

Becoming a member of your local library has never been easier. If you live, work or study in Leicestershire, register online and get started.

You’ll be issued with an online joiner number. With this you can:

  • Borrow from our digital library
  • Use the online reference library
  • Request books through the online catalogue

You’ll need to pop into a library to be issued a physical card – you can only take books out or use Smart libraries if you have a card. Simply explain that you have joined online, and remember to bring your online joiner number and some ID.

PIN: Choose your own memorable pin (4 numbers) and keep it safe. Your pin number will give you access to our online library services.

Join the library online

You cannot join online if you are under 16.

*Please note: during the COVID-19 pandemic parents and guardians can request library membership for under-16s by contacting 0116 305 2695 or emailing libraries@leics.gov.uk
