Everyone is welcome to be a library member and it's free to join. Just come into the library, fill out a form and provide proof of your current name and address, such as your drivers licence, rates notice or health care card. Please note that a parent or guardian will need to fill out a membership form and sign for children under the age of 18 years.​​​​

Borrowing privileges:

  • adults, young adults and children can borrow up to 10 items; and
  • all items are available for a three week loan period.

Updates to borrowing - effective 1 July 2017

To deliver a more effective inter-library loans service, the State Library of WA and Public Libraries WA will be making some changes, commencing 1 July 2017:​​
  • patrons will each have access to a total of 12 inter-library loans per annum.;
  • fiction items will be available for inter-library loan lending from 12 months after the item’s purchase. This applies to fiction in all formats; and
  • if an external loan from outside the WA public library system is requested, a fee based on recovering costs will be charged.
These changes will be trialled for a six-month period.

Any inter-library loan requests submitted prior to the commencement of the trial will not be affected.

Library staff will endeavour to supply requested items through alternative means, including purchasing requested items rather than ordering an inter-library loan. Services the library provides as alternatives to inter-library loans will be promoted in the near future, including e-books and reader’s advisory.

If you have questions or would like to provide feedback on these changes, please speak to library staff.​
