It’s free to join the library and borrow items from our collections. However, to enable us to make our services available to everyone, fees, fines and charges apply to some services. 

Payments can be made online or in our libraries via credit card, EFTPOS or cheque. From 1 April 2021, we are cash free and we thank you for your support and understanding. 

Overdue fines

Item Fine
Junior or teenage items 10c per day
Adult items 30c per day
Debt collection charge (in addition to outstanding fines) $15.50

We suspend your borrowing rights if:

  • you have an item more than 21 days overdue
  • you have overdue fines of $30 or more, or
  • your outstanding fines are $50 or more.

If your outstanding fines add up to $50 or more, they are passed on to a debt collection agency.

To avoid fines, you can set up email notifications to be alerted before your items are due.
