With your library card you can:
Borrow books, language courses, and CDs
Access free online tools for homework help
Your library card gives you free access, from anywhere and at any time, to a wealth of online encyclopaedias, dictionaries, news stories and other reference tools.
More benefits for under 18s
Free reservations - if you're under 18 you can reserve teen and childrens items that are on loan or at another library, absolutely free.
Free Internet Access
All library members are entitled to an hour a day free internet access but if you are under 16 you will need your parents written permission.
