How do I use it?

To start borrowing things you first need to register on our website and decide if you will be a Member or Casual User.

  • Membership is a cost but fees are lower, this will benefit regular borrowers.
  • Casual Users do not pay membership but the borrowing fee is higher, it you only need to borrow once or twice a year this may be better for you.

Once you have registered and chosen how you would like to borrow you can start to borrow. Please don’t forget to bring your ID with your current address to the library when you collect your first loan.
