Become a Kent Library Member

Joining Kent Libraries is free and open to everyone. You only need to register online if you have not already done so at a library.

Joining online will provide you with a basic library membership that will enable you to reserve items for collection from one of our libraries or mobile libraries, as well as use our online resources, such as e-books, e-audiobooks, e-magazines and e-newspapers.

For more information on Library membership options visit the website page Join, library cards and PIN.
