Your new and improved online library system is ready!
Published on 30th March 2022
Dublin City Libraries has introduced a new online library system with improved functionality and a fresh look.
Members can manage their library accounts online, browse a catalogue of 12 million items, and reserve items to borrow. The new system has many improved features.
- Members can easily manage their reading lists and order items to borrow.
- The catalogue offers recommendations to readers as well as themed bookshelves and links to useful resources.
- Members can reserve eBooks and eAudiobooks as well as physical books in one searchable catalogue.
- Library membership can be renewed online for the first time.
- The new system has a new look and works great on mobile phones and tablets.
Library members can access the new system, log into accounts, at https://dublincity.spydus.ie/
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. Bear in mind, your old pin will work on PC Reservation (library PCs) until you log into the new system. This is a phased switchover so you will need a new PIN on the new system. As a cheat we suggest carrying over your old PIN or using one of your pet PINS to enable you access our online resources and computers and internet.
If you're not a member of Dublin City Libraries use this link and click on your local library authority.
If you’re not already a library member, you can join online or in a library branch and you’ll have access to your new online account straight away. All library members can borrow up to 12 items at a time, and choose from a catalogue of 12 million items.
Library members can also instantly borrow and download eBooks and eAudiobooks using the library’s Borrowbox app. Access to online newspapers and magazines is also available through the PressReader and Libby apps.
