You can also visit any Bury Council library to join in person. If you visit a library, we will need to see proof of your name and address and you can start borrowing immediately. If you're under 18 a parent or guardian will have to join on your behalf. If you lose your card then please contact your nearest library as soon as possible. There is a charge of ¬£2.00 to replace your card.
