Conditions of Membership

Your Peterborough Library membership card can be used at all of our libraries.

You must have your membership card present when borrowing items. You may borrow up to 12 items on your card. These can be borrowed from and returned to any branch of Peterborough Libraries. Items may be renewed 3 times at any branch or online. Our staff are happy to renew items over the telephone during opening hours.

You will need your library card number near at hand when you contact us. If a reservation has been placed on an item you have on loan a renewal is not permitted. Items may be returned to any Peterborough library. Overdue charges will be incurred for the late return of items. Membership is suspended when you have exceeded the limits set for overdue items and outstanding charges. Overdue notices are a courtesy reminder for your convenience.

A reservation and inter-library loan service is available for those items which are on loan, available at another branch or held by another library service. A fee is charged for this service. You can place your own reservations for most items via the public access computers at our branches or through the Peterborough Library Service online catalogue. All costs incurred by the Library due to items lost or damaged whilst in your care may be reimbursed. All reservations, inter-library loans and lost membership card charges are non-refundable. If you change your address or name, please notify us immediately.

Please report lost cards to the library immediately. You will remain responsible for any items borrowed before the loss is reported. Membership details are held under the terms of the Data Protection Act.
