Save time and use our online catalogue to find the items you want.

Do you struggle to find time to get to the Library? Can you not find what you want to borrow on the shelves? Order items online with Click and Collect

You can see all our items to borrow on the online catalogue, and search for specific items there too. When you've made your selection, choose Click and Collect. You can also choose which library you would like to collect from. We will contact you when the items are ready.

You can request items on loan, items available on the shelf, and new items that are still on order. There is no charge for the Click and Collect service.

Click and Collect

Suggest an item

If we don't have an item you would like, you can suggest an item for purchase. If the item is recent and likely to be popular, the library will try to purchase it.

If the item is older, specialised or doesn't fit our collection guidelines, we can try to borrow it from another library through an inter-library loan. A fee of $16.50 may apply to some loans.
