From birth, it’s your library and membership is free.
All that is required is you visit your local library with proof of address (e.g. driver’s licence, utility bill). You can register online before you visit or fill in a short application form when you get there.
If you are under 12, come along with your parent or guardian. They will need to bring proof of address e.g. driver’s licence, utility bill.
If you are between 12 and 18, you need a parent or guardian to sign the application form as guarantor.
If you are a child care worker or teacher, bring along a letter signed by your supervisor/principal and avail of borrowing up to 40 books for 84 days.
Since March 2017, public libraries across the Republic of Ireland will operate a shared service for all members.
This means, you can access books from another public library authority with the same terms and conditions as your local library, use your local library card in any public library across Ireland (with the exception of Cork City at present) and return books to a public library convenient to you.
No problem! You can buy a replacement card in any branch for €2.00.
