Join the Library

 

Haddenham Community Library is part of Buckinghamshire County Library Service which means that joining Haddenham Community Library means you join every library in the county and can borrow up to 30 items at a time! If you already have a Buckinghamshire library card it will work in our library.

 

If not, click on the Join for Free link below. 

You can join in two ways:

Full library membership

 

You can come to the Library with proof of your name and address and we'll sign you up right away. Alternatively you can print out the membership form, fill it in and then visit the library.

 

It's totally free! (Under 16s will need a parent or guardian signature.)

 

Once you've joined you'll be given a 6-digit PIN number which, when paired with the number on the back of your card, gives you access to the eLibrary online resources listed below as well.

 

You can find out about the Resources and Facilities we offer at the library below.

Unless the books you have on loan are reserved by someone else, you can renew items up to 4 times. You can either renew your books online or in any Buckinghamshire library by showing your membership card.
