Join your local library

2. How to join

Suspension of library fines

We've suspended our fines policy so you'll not be charged if you cannot renew or return your books. For example; if you need to self-isolate.

To join a Stockport library simply complete the form below and you will be allocated with a temporary membership number.

When you receive this number go to your local Stockport library to complete the membership process.

Once you become a member of the library service you'll be given a library card. This allows you to use any of the public libraries in Stockport.

You need to show your library card each time you wish to borrow items – items can be renewed at any branch or online.
