Better Libraries App

Making the most of your library membership just got easier with your library app. Browse your library’s catalogue on the go, discover online content, and find out what’s on at a library near you.

Whether you’re out and about or at home you can check your loan due dates, see whether your reservations are waiting for you, and even link multiple accounts so they’re all in one place. When you next visit the library you won’t need to remember your cards either, the digital card in your app works at self-issue machines and at the enquiry desk.


Digital Library Card

Your library card is always with you with the digital barcode in the library app.

Manage your account

Check the due dates on your loans, and renew them if they are not reserved for another borrower.

Search and reserve on the go

Find the book you've been looking for from our extensive catalogue and place your reservation in the app.

Link your family's accounts

Manage all of your family's library accounts in one place. Sign in with an adult account and add family accounts as linked accounts to manage loans and reservations, and access their digital library cards.

Book barcode scanner

Save money by checking if the library has a book available on the catalogue by scanning the barcode on the back of a book while shopping
