Membership of Portsmouth City libraries is free - you don’t even need to live in Portsmouth.
You can join in person at any library, or complete the online application form.
If you’re under 16, we need to check that one of your parents, or your guardian, is happy for you to join the library.
You can use your library card straight away in all Portsmouth City Council's ten libraries. If you borrow items from one branch, you can return them to any Portsmouth library.
We can email you a reminder that your books are overdue, or let you know that your reservation is ready for collection, if you let us have your email address when you join.
