Memberships

No matter who you are, everyone is welcome to join the Library. Plus, membership is FREE!

Joining is super-easy, and to do so you’ll just need to bring in a few items:

  • Current proof of your name and address
  • The name, phone number and address of an alternative contact who doesn’t live at your address

If you’re a kid under 16, you’ll need mum, dad or your guardian to sign your membership application.

Travellers, you’re more than welcome to join the library, you’ll just need to pay a refundable deposit. Also, welcome to the land Down Under! 


Your Membership Card

Your Membership card is your golden ticket to the library, so ensure you always bring it with you. You won’t be allowed to use our services with out it – rules are rules!

If the unthinkable happens and your card is lost or stolen, please let us know ASAP before unauthorised use occurs and you’re held liable. Yikes.

Replacement of lost cards cost $10.50 per card, or $21 for a family set of cards. 

However if your card has been stolen, give us your police report number and a replacement card will be given to you free of charge.

Now that we have covered the exciting stuff, we should let you know that you can’t actually borrow items if you currently have anything overdue or any fees outstanding.

It is also important to note that a charge will be made for the replacement of lost/damaged cards or library stock and an administration fee will apply for refunds on lost items. The administration fee will be charged once a mail notice is sent out for overdue items.
