How to join the library

Joining your local library is easy. Membership is free and open to all, so join today.

Hillingdon residents may join using their HillingdonFirst card and one additional proof of address (for example, recent utility bill, driving licence) is required. You will be asked to fill in an application form. 

If you do not have a HillingdonFirst card, visit your local library with two proofs of ID including proof of address. You will be asked to fill in an application form and be issued with a library card. 

Borrowing items

You will be asked to produce your ticket whenever you wish to borrow items. Everyone can borrow up to 15 items from any library in Hillingdon.

Books and talking books are normally issued for three weeks.

DVDs and videos are issued for one week. 

Special tickets : Playgroups, child minders, day nurseries, parent and toddler groups and foster carers may be entitled to a special ticket to borrow extra books. Groups are welcome to visit their local library by arrangement or library staff may be able to visit you to tell stories or talk to parents about books for this age group. Please ask staff for details.
