Everyone is welcome to join the library. When you apply for a library card, you will be asked for identification showing your name and current address.
Acceptable identification includes drivers' licence, bills, official letters from a government department, or concession card. Those under 18 years need to have a parent or guardian complete the form and show identification.
You can join the library even if you live outside the area. Your card can be used to borrow from either Ashfield or Haberfield libraries and is current for three (3) years. You must present your card to borrow items or to use the internet. Please notify us if you lose your card or change your address. There is a charge for replacement cards.
You may have up to 30 items on load at any one time, and the loan period is three weeks. Items can be returned at either library. You may extend your loan by accessing your account online through the catalogue or calling either the Ashfield or Haberfield library before or on the due date and provide your borrower number. Reserved items cannot be renewed. Items seven days overdue cannot be renewed. Fees are incurred for late returned items. If an item is lost, stolen or damaged you will need to pay for the cost of the item and a non-refundable processing fee for each item.
Together we can create an exceptional place for us all to enjoy the library services.
