Online Library Services

23 Mar 20

You can join the library online and get eBooks, audiobooks, online magazines and newspapers for free straight away, or even take language and other courses. Here's how! 

Join online 

  • To join the library online, fill out this formwith your name, address, email and some other details. 
  • Click, 'Submit' and you'll be taken to a new page that gives you a 'Temporary' library barcode. 
  • This will be your library number and you need it to access online services so save it somewhere or write it down and keep it safe. 
  • This page will also instruct you to 'set a PIN' and will give you a link to do that. 
  • Once you've set your PIN and you have your library number, you're all ready to access all the online services.  

If you are having trouble joining, you can contact your local SDCC library for help. The buildings are closed but staff are available! Find your local library by clicking here.

We've included short guides to getting and using these services below.
