How Can Children Join the Library?

New Website

We now have a new Young Libraries website at www.libraryofbirmingham.com/younglibraries

We will be continually adding more information to the new website. Check it out now for the latest news and events in community libraries and in the Library of Birmingham.

Membership of the library services is free. You can join at any library by presenting proof of your name and current address. You can join at any age - the younger the better ! - but if you are 15 or under don't forget to ask your Parent/Carer or someone over 18 in your family to sign it to say it's OK for you to join. You can fill in a paper copy of the children's joining form which you can get from any Birmingham Library. Take the completed form to your local library and we will give you a free library card which you can use straightaway.
