'Live well with LiveWire'


Using your Library Card

You can use your card in any LiveWire library to borrow books and use the computers.

Library users may currently borrow up to 20 items.

Your card enables you to use a computer free of charge for up to 1 hour per day. Please click HERE for more information on use of computers.

Please bring your library card with you on each visit. You are responsible for your library card and anything issued on it. You should never let anyone else use your card.  You will be asked to pay a replacement cost for anything which is lost or damaged while on loan to you.

What if I lose my card?

Please let us know immediately if your card is lost or stolen to prevent misuse.

If it is lost, you will need to purchase a replacement card for a charge of £1.50

Can I keep items on loan for longer?

Items can be renewed:

  • in person at any library
  • by phoning any library
  • by post - please quote your library card number 
  • by using our online service.  You will need your card number and PIN to do this.

Books and talking books are currently being issued on long-term loan for free, until 13th January 2021.

For any items in demand, users may be asked to return them as soon as possible.

Reservations on individual items is not currently possible, although a new Order and Collect service is being launched.
