Your library account

You can update your details and manage your library account online or at your local library.

Managing your library account 

Login to our online library catalogue to view your current loans, charges, and reservations to help you manage your account. 

Updating your account details 

Library accounts expire and need updating every three years so that we can confirm your details are still correct. When an account needs renewing library staff will check your details are up to date including your address and contact details.
