How to join
If you live in Shetland you can join the library by filling in one of the online forms below. Our staff will create a membership for you and post you out your membership card(s). They will also email you out your borrower number and PIN so you can start using eBooks before the card arrives.
You can also join in person when you are visiting the library.
- Select Shetland Library Adult membership form to join as an adult member. You will need 'a scan or photo' of a valid form of ID (passport, driving licence, official letter) ready to upload with your application
- Select Shetland Library membership form for young people under 16yrs to sign up any number of young people within your family. You will need 'a scan or photo' of your ID (passport, driving licence, official letter) ready to upload with your application
If you are visiting Shetland and not a permanent resident, we would love to offer you a Visitor membership. Please visit us at either our Lerwick or Community Library branches with your ID (passport, driving licence, official letter or similar) and complete our short membership form. We will need a note of both your Shetland and home addresses. Sorry, we cannot offer visitor memberships online.
