Join the library and renew loans

You can join the library in any branch or if you are 16 or over you can join the library by completing the online membership form. Your joining pack, including your library card, will be posted out to you within a few days providing you with instant library membership. You will be able to borrow two books, use online resources and public computers.

You can return books to any Herefordshire library – it doesn’t have to be the one you borrowed them from.

Renew your library loans

You can renew books twice in person, on the telephone or online provided that they are not already requested

  • If one of your items has been requested by another reader you can contact the library for an additional 48 hours to return the item before incurring any charges. This runs from the date you make this loan extension
  • DVDs, games and talking books cannot be renewed online or over the telephone. Repeat hire charges are applicable for each subsequent loan period or part of a loan period, and are payable on return
