Library card number and PIN

Your library card number is the 9-digit number below the barcode on your library card.

Gold Cards and b_line cards need to be activated at your local library in order to be used as library cards. You use the 9-digit number on the back of the card next to the barcode.

Your PIN is the first 2 digits and the last 2 digits of your date of birth. So, if you were born on 25 October 1971, your PIN would be 2571.
