All library items are free to borrow.

If an item is returned damaged, or not returned at all, fees may be charged to replace it. We do not have overdue charges! If you have an overdue item on your account, you won't be able to borrow until that is returned.

DVDs rated MA-15 or R may only be borrowed by an adult member, and book club kits can only be borrowed by a book club. You can find out more about book clubs here.

You can borrow items from any location and return to any location - there's no need to bring them back to the specific place you borrowed from. Our branches all have return chutes that can be used out of hours, as well.

How long can we borrow items for?

Most physical items (books and talking books) you can borrow for four weeks. Magazines and DVDs are for two weeks; book club kits are for 6 weeks. If we can, we will renew the item for you, up to three times.

eLibrary items, including eAudiobooks, eBooks and eMagazines have different loan periods depending on the service you use to access them; when the loan period expires the item will return itself and should be deleted from your device.

Most material will be renewed automatically, if possible, up to three times. Items cannot be renewed if another library member is waiting for them, or if you have an overdue item. You can also call us to renew items, or come into a library, or do it online.

To renew online you will need to know your account PIN/password and library card barcode number to log in. If you don't know your account PIN, or would like to set one up, please call (03) 8734 8999.
