Joining the library is a great idea. It is free, and offers you so much. You can join the library in person by talking to a member of staff in any of our libraries, but you can also join online. Simply go to and click on the Join the Library link. This video will take you through the steps of how to join the library online.

  1. Click on Join Online

  3. Fill out your personal details
  4. Congratulations, you are now a member of Westmeath Libraries - remember to note your Temporary ID

Any questions? Please contact your local library, or library HQ - 044 9332162 or email

Your temporary ID will work for one month, so remember to finalise your membership by talking to a member of staff, either in person, telephone, or via email. Your membership will then remain valid for one year, after which time you can renew online, or ask a member of staff to renew your card for another year.
