How to renew my books online 

Can I request a book that my library doesn’t have?

If your local library does not have the book you want we can request it for you from another library. Please speak to a member of staff for more information. The following fees apply:

  • Loans within Irish Public Libraries - FREE 
  • Inter Library Loan (e.g. British Library) - €12.00

Requests usually take around a month to be filled, however it can take longer if the title is checked out to another library borrower, or if is a hard to trace item.

You may also request a book by filling out this form. Please note, your membership must be in date.
