We have a request service for books, journal articles, music scores and play sets. If you can’t find the item you want, we can try to get it for you by either buying a copy to add to our collection, or by borrowing it from another library in the UK.

Help logging into the Library Catalogue

You can browse the library catalogue without logging into your account. If you wish to place a hold (reserve) on a book, renew a book or change account settings you will be asked to login. To login you will need your library card number (bar code), and a PIN.

What is your PIN?

If you joined the library before July 2014, your PIN will be the last 4 digits of the phone number we have for you.

If you are a new joiner (or if you haven’t previously given us your phone number), your PIN will be: ‘changeme’.

Using your PIN

  1. You will be prompted to login where necessary. A screen with 2 boxes will appear labelled: 'Your Barcode' and 'PIN'
  2. Enter the number below the barcode on the back of your library card – be sure to leave out any spaces
  3. Enter your PIN (If you don't know what your PIN is, try the last 4 digits of your phone number or the word: 'changeme')
  4. After a successful login you will be able to continue
