How to join the Library


To borrow books, CDs, DVDs and other materials from any of the libraries in Doncaster you will need to complete a membership application form (available to download on this page) and you will need to bring proof of identity with you to the library, which must show your full name and address. You will then become a full member and be issued with a membership card which enables you to borrow items or use the computer terminals.

If you have no proof of name and address with you, you will be given an Internet Plus membership which will allow you to borrow only 2 books and to access the computer terminals for 30 minutes per day. We will then ask you to bring in some form of ID and when you return to the library with the ID we will upgrade you to full membership.
