Membership is free to anyone. You can borrow books, use online resources or do your own research, all at no charge. We keep our other charges to a minimum so all members of the community can access our services.
If your book or other item is overdue we charge you 25 cents a day per item, up to a maximum of $10 per item. Please note you will be unable to borrow or renew any items, or place a hold on any item until your total overdue charges is reduced to less than $5.
Reserving a Book:
If you reserve a book with us it will cost you $1. Inter-library reservations (where we reserve the book for you from another public library service) will cost $3 per item. In addition to the $3, Inter-Library reservations from the SWIFT Library Co-op (Ashfield, Botany and Marrickville) will cost you $6 and from universities or TAFE institutions $16.50.
Lost and Damaged Items:
If an item is damaged or lost it will cost you $5 plus the cost of replacing the item.
