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.

Logging into the Library Catalogue

In addition to your library card number (bar code), a PIN number is now needed to log in to the library catalogue.

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

If you haven’t previously given us your phone number, your PIN will be ‘changeme’
