Online membership allows you to place a reservation in the online catalogue, and to use our digital services, including downloading e-books, audiobooks, music, as well as accessing our members-only databases. You cannot borrow physical items until you convert to a full membership, but this can be done at any time.
Full membership allows you to do all of the above, plus borrow physical items from any Ipswich Libraries service point.
