Join the library

Joining the library is free and available to those that live, work or study in Plymouth.

If you join the library online, you'll need to visit a library to pick up your card. Alternatively, you can ask for a digital library card number.

You can also join at any local library (no identification required).

Once you join the library in Plymouth you'll be able to:


You'll need a PIN if you want to renew and reserve books online with the Plymouth Libraries app or via our website, use a computer or wifi in a library, or download eBooks, eAudiobooks, eMagazines, eComics and digital newspapers. Your PIN would have been set up when you joined the library.

If you do not know your PIN or you have forgotten it you can reset it by clicking on "Forgotten PIN" in the sign in box on our Plymouth Libraries Online website or email us at
