Join the Library
How do I Join the Library?
A) To join the library call into one of our libraries and fill out an application form. Please bring with you proof of your current address and photo ID. Photo identification can include a passport, driving licences or student card. Proof of address can include a recent bill, a letter addressed to you, or a letter from your landlord.
B) You can now register online for membership of Mayo County Library. Please complete the online form ensuring all fields marked with * are completed. You will be able to reserve items straightaway but to borrow items you'll need to collect your library card - just call into any branch, bringing with you proof of your current address and photo ID. Photo identification can include a passport, driving licences or student card. Proof of address can include a recent bill, a letter addressed to you, or a letter from your landlord.
If you are under 18 years of age you will need a form signed by your parent/guardian giving you permission to use the library's facilities. This form must be signed at the library.
How many items can I borrow? Currently you may borrow 12 per visit, and you can exchange them as often as you like.
What can I borrow? Books, videos, DVD's, musical instruments, music CD's and you will also have free access to our online library service providing access to thousands of E-Books & E-Audiobooks, full colour E-Magazines/Journals, Online Newspapers, an online E-Learning facility offering access to over 400 courses and an Online Language learning resource that teaches real conversations in over 70 languages
How long can I keep an item? Maximum 3 weeks. Items may be renewed providing they are not required by other customers. If you can't visit the library the loan period may be extended via the library website, or by phone.
What if the item I want is not on the shelves? All items in Mayo libraries are listed on a public access searching catalogue and can be made available to you through a country-wide request system. Items not available in Mayo may also be requested through our inter-library lending system.
How old must I be? You can join at any age
