By registering your email address with the library service you will receive automatic email reminders three days before your books are due. You will also receive email notifications of overdue items, which will be sent the day after an item becomes overdue.

Please note: overdue email notifications are not sent for DVDs or Blu-Rays.

Remember to tell us if you change your email address in order to ensure that you continue to receive this service.

Reminder emails are a courtesy service only and should not be relied on to avoid late return charges. The non-receipt of an email reminder, for whatever reason, including any interruption to the service or conditions on the web, is not a valid reason to waive charges.

Contact your local library to register your email address.​

In order to renew or reserve online you will need to enter your 4 digit PIN number.

What if I do not know or have forgotten my PIN?

Please request a new PIN to ask for it to be emailed to you.

Keep your PIN secure

  • Please try to remember your PIN and keep it secure.

Please note: if you enter your PIN incorrectly 3 times you will automatically be blocked from accessing your account. If you experience any difficulties please email your nearest library.
