  • You can borrow up to 20 items in any combination of books, audio books, DVDs, Blu-ray and CDs.
  • You can borrow books for three weeks initially - longer if you renew them.
  • You can hire DVDs, Blu-Ray, CDs and audiobooks for a week at a time (2 days for New Release DVDs and Blu-Ray).  There is a  charge for these items.
  • If your items are overdue make sure you contact us as soon as possible to renew them - this will stop charges increasing. You can renew online. There is even a terminal in the bus station where you can renew items. See our contact details on the right of this page.
  • Once you have a library card you can borrow from any Poole Library, and can return the items to any Poole library.
  • If you have a library card from a neighbouring authority, it will not work on our system, but you are welcome to join - it only takes a couple of minutes. You cannot return their items to us.
  • We do not keep music sets or playsets, but can get them for you - see our Requesting an item page
