Please note that we are working through some teething issues as we introduce the new system

 

Items you have reserved from other locations may appear on your account as available for pick-up when they have not yet reached the branch. Contact your local branch to ensure your item has arrived before travelling there. We are currently working to restore notifications for reserves.

The first time you log in to the new system, you will be asked to reset your PIN. This is because your PIN is encrypted and private to you so it could not be transferred to the new system, and users of our eServices will need to update their PIN in order to access these services online. You can do this by clicking 'Forgot Your PIN?' at dlr.spydus.ie/ 

 

Online books through Overdrive may be temporarily unavailable while migration takes place to the new system

Your date of birth is required for the new system and can be updated by contacting your local branch.

The dlr Libraries App may not work until your date of birth has been updated

 

We have introduced a new online library system with improved functionality and a fresh look.  

The new system has many improved features.  

  • Logging into your library account, and managing your reserves, reading lists and contact information is much easier.  

  • The catalogue is easier to use and has images and recommendations as well as themed bookshelves and links to useful resources. 

  • You can now find, borrow and reserve eBooks and eAudiobooks as well as physical books in one searchable catalogue.  

  • You can renew your library membership online for the first time.   

  • The new system has a new look and works great on mobile phones and tablets. 

You can check it out at https://dlr.spydus.ie
