Ni Libraries Info

Due to the rapidly evolving situation with COVID-19, Libraries NI has temporarily closed all public libraries and Out of Hours access from 5:00pm on Friday 20 March 2020 until further notice.  All mobile libraries and Homecall services have been stopped and all events in public libraries have been cancelled. All loans from your local library or mobile will be renewed automatically during the period of closure. Please do not try to return your books until we are open. Please keep visiting our website and social media channels for further updates and information.


If you live, work or study in Northern Ireland you can join the library for free – just complete the online form.


When you complete the form you will automatically become a virtual library member. This means you can borrow eBooks, eMagazines and Audiobooks, browse the online catalogue, register for updates and make use of the virtual services.


To take your membership one step further and become a full member just visit your local library and verify your details. To do this, you will need to show current proof of your name and address e.g. driving licence or household bill.


Children under 16 will also be asked for a guarantor’s signature and this is usually provided by a parent or guardian.


Please Note – if you are already a member of the library you can access eBooks, eMagazines and Audiobooks by using your membership number to download.
