How to join the library
Joining the library is free! Library membership will give you instant access to a host of online resources. Download e-books, magazines, comics, newspapers and e-audiobooks to your tablet or mobile phone, or browse the online catalogue to reserve the book you want and pick up at your preferred library.
When you visit your local library there is even more to enjoy - books, films, free wifi and lots of events and activities, and it's so easy! Before visiting the library, check out the opening hours and contact details for your local library.
Membership of South Lanarkshire Leisure and Culture's libraries is available to anyone who works, lives or studies in South Lanarkshire or any of our partner authorities.
How to join
To join the library, just take one proof of ID with you, which includes your name and address, for example:
- A council tax notification
- Driver's licence
- Recent electricity, gas or phone bill
and a staff member will create your Library membership.
How to join online
You need an email address before starting. Go to Join online and complete the application. You will receive your online membership number - take a note of it to use the online services.
Now enjoy the service! You will still need to bring one form of ID to the library to collect your library membership card.
Using your Membership number and PIN you can view and change your personal information, manage your loans, reserve items and much more from the My Library Login page.
