Joining the library

If you live, work or study in Derbyshire you can join the library.

Simply fill out our online membership form and you'll be given a temporary library card number. To complete the process please take one of the forms of ID listed on this page to any Derbyshire library.

Call into your local library

We will normally need to see a form of identification with your name and address on before we can give you a library ticket.

The documents we accept as proof of identification are:

  • driving licence
  • bank statement
  • building society book
  • Post Office savings book
  • welfare benefits book
  • pension book
  • bus pass
  • receipted bills
  • council tax demand
  • medical card

Just take one of these documents along to your nearest library and you will be issued with a library ticket. If you have any more questions about how to join our staff will be happy to help.

Already a member?

If you think you're already a library member but have lost your ticket, please contact your local library for a replacement.
