After completing the online form you will receive a welcome message containing your temporary library number and confirming your PIN. You will need this information to access your account. Please note that your temporary number will only be valid for 12 months.

You will then need to visit your chosen library within 12 months with your temporary library number and one proof of identity which shows your name and address (for example a driver's licence, bank statement or utility bill) to receive your permanent library number and card which will give you full membership. Children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.

You can access your account at anytime using your library number and PIN.

If you are already a full member of Swansea Libraries, you do not need to register again to access all our online resources.

Your Swansea Libraries membership gives you access to the Libraries Together Passport scheme. For more information please visit
