You must be a member to borrow, but the good news is that it’s free to join! Click here for more information about library membership.
The library catalogue can be searched online to locate specific items, or just to browse, and you can request any of the items you find.
If we don’t have the item you’re looking for we can try to source a copy through the Request and Information Service. There is no charge for this service but conditions are applicable. You can also suggest an item be considered for purchase.
You will be amazed at what we have in our collections, find out more below.
