Library Catalogue

Access the library catalogue for the Isle of Wight Library Service.

You can search for books, DVDs and other items on the library catalogue, browse through recent additions to stock, read recent reader reviews and find contact information for your local library. You do not have to log in to do this.

As a library member

If you are a member of the library, you can:

  • log into and manage your account
  • check out online loans
  • reserve books and other items in your local library or any of the Island's libraries.

Managing your account

Log in by entering your library card number in the ID box at the top right. For extra security, you will also need to know your PIN. If you don't know your PIN, ask in any library and they will tell you what it is. Once you have logged in with your PIN, you can change it to something more memorable by clicking on My account, and then Change my details (on the top left of the screen).

You can also manage your current loans. Once you have logged in, click on My account and then on Current loans, and you will be able to renew any or all of the items that you currently have out on loan (as long as they have not been reserved by another library user).

Reserving loan items

You will be notified when items are available to be collected from the library of your choice. There is a small charge for this service. You can also make suggestions of books that you think the library should purchase.
