You can join the LRC by filling in a library application form. There are two forms depending on your age group (over- and under-16 respectively). These forms are available at the issue desk.
Once your form has been processed, your Young Scot card will become your library card. If you are already a member in the public library e.g. Peebles, Innerleithen or a mobile library, you can use the same membership card in the school LRC. You can also use your Young Scot card in the public library. Please remember to bring your card to the LRC whenever you want to borrow anything, even if you are just borrowing something for the period.
How many resources can I borrow?
S1-S4 may borrow 2 resources.
S5 and S6 may borrow 4 resources.
How long can I have the resources for?
Books and talking books may be borrowed for 3 weeks.
DVDs (requested from other libraries) can be borrowed for 1 week.
Remember you can have resources renewed as long as no-one else wants them (up to a maximum of 2 renewals). Just bring them, or your Young Scot card, to the issue desk and we will renew them for you.
Please return your resources on time because they will be required by other users. Remember to take great care with any resources you borrow as you are responsible if they are lost or damaged. Pupils are not charged late return fines. However, lost books must be paid for.
Please remember always to have your resources issued at the desk before you leave the LRC. When you are returning resources remember to take them to the issue desk, please do not leave them on the trolley or put them back on the shelf!
Staff can also use public library membership cards in the school LRC. However staff wishing to borrow boxes of books will be allocated a different card for the use in the LRC. Please come to the LRC to pick up a membership
