Library Membership

Library membership entitles you to borrow books, audiobooks, DVDs and more in Somerset and across the LibrariesWest group.

What you need to join

Your membership will also allow you to access People’s Network computers, online learning and a host of other services and benefits.

To become a member of Somerset Libraries, you’ll need to visit your local library. You can also start the registration process online on the LibrariesWest website. You’ll be asked to complete a membership form and show proof of your identity and address.

Examples of suitable documents include:

  • Driving licence
  • Council Tax bill
  • Council or Housing Association rent card or tenancy agreement
  • Medical card
  • Utility bill less than 3 months old
  • Bank statement
  • Building society book

If you have no proof of address, staff may be able to provide you with a limited introductory membership. You will then be able to borrow one item at a time, excluding DVDs, and access the library computers.
