Join a Library

Man and girl joining library

It is easy to join Salford libraries - no proof of address is required and it is FREE!

You can join online or at any library and you will be issued with a membership card, which you should bring with you each time you visit. Copies of the membership forms can be downloaded to the right of this page.

A parent or guardian must sign the form, and give consent for internet use for children.

Your library card allows you to borrow a range of books, audiobooks and other items from any of our 16 libraries. It also allows you free access to the internet and access to our libraries online service which allows you to renew and reserve books, access free e-audio books, book a PC online and access a range of free online resources.

You must not allow anyone to use this card, and if you lose it, please tell us immediately as you are responsible for anything issued on it.

Over 10,761 new people became a member of the library in 2018

Sixteen libraries. Thousands of books. Computers at every turn.
