New and improved online system for Donegal County Library Service members


Donegal County Library Service has introduced a new online library system for members.

Members can manage their library accounts online, browse a catalogue of 12 million items, and reserve items to borrow.     


 Launched on March 30th, the new system has many improved features.

  • Members can easily manage their reading lists and order items to borrow.
  • The catalogue offers recommendations to readers as well as themed bookshelves and links to useful resources.
  • Members can reserve eBooks and eAudiobooks as well as physical books in one searchable catalogue.
  • Library membership can be renewed online for the first time. 
  • The new system has a new look and works great on mobile phones and tablets.



It’s simple to use the self service machines for quick and easy issues and returns. 


Launching the new online service for Donegal readers, Rita Chapman, Senior Executive Librarian with Donegal County Library Service said: “We’re delighted to be able to offer this new and improved online library system to our members. Our aim is to provide the very best services we can, both in our branches and online. The new online service is a huge improvement and reflects what libraries are all about - offering a modern efficient service that looks great and makes it easier than ever to find the items you want to borrow.”


If you’re not already a library member, you can join online or in a library branch and you’ll have access to your new online account straight away.

All library members can borrow up to 12 items at a time, and choose from a catalogue of 12 million items.

Library members can also instantly borrow and download eBooks and eAudiobooks using the library’s Borrowbox app.

Access to online newspapers and magazines is also available through the PressReader and Libby apps.
