Inspire Online

Our virtual service for you to access at home!

Whilst our library buildings are closed we’ve gathered details below of all the online resources you can still access from home.

To be able to access some of these resources such as eReading and eAudio you will need to have a library membership. It is free to join and you can do this online as follows;

  • fill in the application form online here
  • once you have completed the form the next screen will give you your temporary membership number
  • email your name and temporary number to ask@inspireculture.org.uk
  • the ASK Inspire team will email you back with a membership number

If you are already a member but have forgotten your PIN don’t worry, you can reset this when you login with your library account here.

You can also sign up to receive emails from us so we can let you know when new resources and activities become available over the following weeks. Click here to sign up.

If you have library books at home that you were unable to return before the libraries closed please don’t worry. We have suspended all late charges and you can just return the books as normal when we re-open. Unfortunately we cannot take reservations or make inter-library loans at this time.

If you do have any enquiries during this time please contact our ASK Inspire team via email – ask@inspireculture.org.uk. Please do bear with us during this busy time as we endeavour to respond as soon as possible. If you don’t have access to email you can call the team on 01623 677 200.
