1 card, 6 Libraries

De Chastelain Library and Louth County Libraries have made a unique agreement to provide reciprocal borrowing and access to their libraries for members.

COVID-19 Library Update:

The Institute’s campus is currently closed. We are therefore not in a position to offer access to external members or members of the public.

Through the 1 Card 6 Libraries service, DkIT students and staff can become members of Louth County Libraries. You must have a current DkIT staff or student card.

Current members of Louth County Libraries aged 18 years or older can join De Chastelain Library by coming to the Library with your County Library card and filling in a membership form. Membership will give you borrowing rights.

De Chastelain Library has its own specific loan and fine categories. See our borrowing section for more information. Access to PCs is limited to off-peak times.

To verify that you are a member of Louth County Library, De Chastelain Library will ring Louth County Library to verify your membership, in line with data protection guidelines. Louth County Libraries are now part of a nationwide library system so your data will be shared with all participating libraries.
