Hamilton City Libraries offers a Digital Membership for those who wish to use our online resources only. A digital membership gives you access to library eBooks, eAudiobooks, eMagazines, eNewspapers, and learning and research databases. You can also use the computers or Chromebooks at any of our branches using your digital membership login details.

There are no ID requirements for a digital membership. As a digital member, you may be charged for placing holds on eBooks or eAudiobooks. Please see our Fees and charges for more information.

If you would like to change to a full membership at any point, just visit one of our branches with your proof of ID and physical address to receive a library card and full borrowing privileges.

Once you have signed up online, you can log in to your Hamilton City Libraries account to:

  • Review your details.

  • Change your login PIN/passcode.

  • See your current eBook/eAudiobook loans.

  • Check charges owing and payment history.

You can contact the Matihiko/Digital Services Team if you need support with digital collections and library platforms.
