Joining the library

Membership of Aberdeen City Libraries is available to people of all ages and abilities, who work, live or study in Aberdeen City or Shire. Join in person at your local library or online by continuing to the registration form clicking 'I Accept' at the bottom of this page. Proof of identity (such as a driving licence, bill or bank card) is required when joining in person or collecting your card after registering online. 

Please note when you register online, you will need to collect your library card from your local library within 90 days from registration.

You can join from birth, but those under the age of 16 years will need permission from a parent or carer, who must take responsibility for items borrowed on the card. Please see the Aberdeen City Libraries website for a full list of libraries, opening hours and services.
