Join, Borrow & Renew


Membership of our libraries is absolutely free for anyone who lives, studies or works in Angus or a neighbouring authority. We also offer temporary memberships for visitors.

It's easy to join, just bring two forms of identification to your local library - one with your current address and one with your signature. 

For anyone under 16, a parent or guardian must complete and sign the application.

If you hold a national entitlement card such as a Young Scot card or a free bus travel card, you need only bring this with you and we will get you started.

Libraries Membership Terms & Conditions

Borrow & Renew

You can borrow up to 12 items at a time. The loan period for books and audio books is 28 days. There is no charge for borrowing books and audio books, but you must have your library card with you. You can also borrow and renew through our Virtual Library.

We don’t charge overdue fees for the late return of items, but we do ask you to renew or return your books on time so that others may enjoy them.  Non-refundable charges do apply for very overdue items that reach “non-returned” status.

After two renewals, you must bring items to a library to request they be re-issued.

If you want a particular book that you can't find in the library, we’ll try to get it for you. Requests for items in our libraries are free. A charge applies for inter-library loans outwith Angus.
