Frequently Asked Questions

Why is a PIN required?

A PIN helps confirm that the library card holder is the owner of the library card. This process is designed to protect the patron and ensure that no one misuses their library card account.

What if I lose my library card?

After you've activated your patron account with your existing library card number and PIN, you'll be able to access your Learning account and history, even if you don’t have the physical card.

If you lose your library card and are issued a new number from your library, your previous learning history won’t be available under the new library card number and PIN.

I’ve lost my library card/forgotten my library card number, what do I do?

If you’ve misplaced your card or forgotten your library card number, please visit your local library where a member of staff can reissue you a new card. Please bring ID and proof of address. There is a £1.50 charge for a replacement card.

Alternatively, you can contact our Customer Service team by emailing or by phoning 01473 351249 who can help you.
