Council Services:

Join the library service

Lincolnshire Libraries are operated by Greenwich Leisure Limited (GLL) on behalf of Lincolnshire County Council.

As a result, GLL has been given access to the library service’s customer records. GLL will only access this information and use it to the extent that it is required to deliver the service on the council’s behalf, in accordance with the requirements of the Data Protection Act 1998.


Call into any Lincolnshire library to collect your free membership card and Personal Identification Number (PIN).

Borrowing items

You can borrow up to 30 books and 6 audio visual items (CDs, DVDs or Blu-rays, where stocked) at any time. Proof of name and address is required if you wish to borrow audio visual items.

Books can be borrowed free of charge for up to three weeks and you can return your items to any library across Lincolnshire.

An item can be renewed up to six times as long as it hasn’t been reserved by another borrower. If you do not extend your loan period on items you have borrowed, or fail to return overdue items, your account will be charged. Accounts over £20 will be referred to a Debt Collection Service. An additional £8 administration charge fee will be applied.

You can view the entire Lincolnshire Library catalogue online and you can reserve up to 20 items to be sent to a library of your choice.

Our Inter Library Loans system also allows us to search and request specific books and other items from across the country. There is a charge for this service.

Email notifications

An email notification service is available from Lincolnshire’s library service. Notifications include pre-notice of overdue items, overdue items and reservations ready for collection.

Visit the Virtual Library to do this yourself online, where you will need your library membership number and PIN.
