Join the library online

(West Sussex Library Catalogue)

Once you have joined online you will be given a temporary library card number and can reserve titles from our catalogue straight away. You will not be able to borrow items or use online services until you receive your library card, which will be sent to you the next working day. 

When you receive your card, you will be given instant access to the eLibrary service. You will also be able to reserve and borrow up to four items from a library.

At a library

Upgrading to full membership allows you to borrow up to 20 items. You will need to visit one of our West Sussex libraries with ID and proof of address to upgrade.

Avoid late charges

When you join the library sign up for email alerts to receive reminders of when your library items are due back.
