Technical problems

Due to a technical problem we are unable to take payments via our contact centre. We are working to fix this as quickly as possible.

Services affected and other ways to pay.


Libraries Join the library

If you live in the UK you can join Manchester library for free:

  • follow the 'Join the library' link to complete a membership form online and we'll give you a temporary membership number;
  • use this number to make reservations online straight away;
  • go to one of our libraries to collect your ticket and you can start borrowing books and accessing reference materials online; and 
  • you'll need to show us proof of your name and address and you can borrow audio or video items, and use library computers.

Visiting as a guest

If you’re visiting from outside the UK and cannot become a library member you can still use our library computers as a guest each time you visit.

However, you will not be able to borrow any books.
