Join the Library

Join The LibraryBecome a member of the Clackmannanshire Library Service and you can borrow up to 10 books for a period of 3 weeks absolutely free of charge!

To join the library service

  • Visit any of our branches.
  • Take a form of identification with you that shows your name and current address, for example a driving licence. Alternatively take a bank statement or utilities bill along with a bank or ID card.
  • You will then be provided with a membership ticket (library card) and can start borrowing items right away.

Borrowing from the library

There is no charge for joining the library service, or for borrowing many items. See the 'Borrowing from the Library' page for full details of the items on offer and any charges.

If you lose your library ticket

In the first instance, report this to your local library to stop the ticket being used if someone else finds it. The library will issue you with a small charge of £2.50. As above, proof of identification will be required.

Library Passport Scheme

The Library Passport Scheme permits access to a number of libraries in Central Scotland, see the Library Passport Scheme page for more information.

Library Request Service

You may reserve an item which is in the library catalogue. You may also request an item which is not in the library catalogue. In either case we shall try to supply you with the item you are looking for, or we will supply you with an alternative.

It takes on average 30 days to supply requests but some are supplied much faster than this, and some much more slowly. It all depends on the availability of the item: we may have to borrow it from another library service, for instance.

It costs £1.00 to request/reserve an item but this is not paid until the item is supplied.

Children (under 16s) do not pay for requests/reservations.
