Library membership

Anyone is welcome to use library facilities, browse the books, and come to library events and activities.

As a library member you can also:

  • Borrow books, audiobooks and DVDs
  • Borrow eBooks and eAudiobooks
  • Use computers and wifi in libraries
  • Access online resources from home

Your card lets you borrow items from and return them to any Herefordshire library and if used regularly is valid for life.

It is free to join the library, borrow books, eBooks and eAudiobooks and use our online resources. There are hire charges for borrowing audiobooks and DVDs. Charges apply for books that have been returned late by adults, but children under 18 are not charged for late books.

If you have given us an email address, we will send you reminders about library items that are due back soon, reserved items that are ready for collection, and updates about the library service.
