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 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. 

If you join the library using the online option you will need to visit the library with proof of address for full access to the physical collection. If you are unable to come into the library to update your online membership please email the library and we will discuss alternative arrangements with you.
