Membership

Joining the Library

  • Membership is free.
  • Once you have a membership you can access our eBooks online free.
  • You can join at Marton, Bulls or Taihape Library and may borrow and return items at any of these libraries.
  • You'll need to bring 2 forms of ID - one that has your address printed on it like a bank statement or letter, and the other with your signature or photograph.
  • When you sign your new card we'll ask you to agree to some conditions
  • If you're under 18 we need a guarantor - an adult (usually a parent) who agrees to be responsible for the books you borrow - your adult needs to come to the library with you when you sign up.
  • Children and young adults under 18 do not need to produce ID.
  • Remember to get yourself a Password or PIN when you register. This means you will be able to access your record online.
  • We have thousands of things you can borrow and do at the Library.

Using our online services

Using your library card and password you can review your borrower record with us, check the books you have out, renew them, make requests (reserves), and update your personal details all from the terminals in the library or your own PC at home.

If you've already got a current library card, all you need is a password. Next time you're in a library, come to the counter with your library card and we'll issue you a password.

If you forget your password at any time, just come back to the counter, with your card or other ID and we can reset it.

In accepting and signing your new library card, you agree to:

  • Return all items borrowed by the date due.
  • Pay for damaged or lost item/s and any debt collection fees.
  • Advise the library of any change of address.
  • Acknowledge the same responsibility for any child you have registered.
