Members enjoy access to our vast choice of fiction and non-fiction titles, as well as to thousands of free-to-download ebooks and audiobooks, and a range of other services.
You can join online or in person at any Hampshire Library. You do not need any identification to join the library. You can join online if you have not previously done so at a library: if you previously had or currently have a Hampshire library membership, please visit your local Hampshire Library.
Once you have joined online you will be given a temporary membership number and your chosen four-digit PIN. You can use this number straight away to borrow and reserve titles from our catalogue. Your temporary membership number will give you temporary access to free-to-download eBooks, audiobooks and eMagazines.
We provide the choice to have a membership account either with or without a physical library card. If you choose to receive a physical card it will be posted to your chosen branch, ready for you to collect and use. Remember to replace your temporary details with your new membership number to continue to access our eBook and audiobook provider as well as other online resources.
If you are under 16 you will need to provide the details of a guarantor to join online.
Parents can access the child’s account online by asking for a library PIN number to be set up in branch. They can then use their child’s library card and PIN number to access the account to renew/reserve.
