How do I order books for collection?

You can order books for collection either:

To sign into your online Bradford Libraries account:

  • follow this link:;
  • select 'login';
  • enter your library card number (this can be found on the back of your library card);
  • and enter your PIN - your PIN is usually the first 2 digits and last 2 digits of your date of birth e.g. if your birthday is 25 December 1970, your PIN is 2570.

Once your books arrive into the library, you will be notified and you can collect them at any time or on any day that we are open to the public.

Do we accept book donations?

Yes we do!

If the books are:

Just drop them off when you're passing by
