What is an inter-library loan?

We participate in inter-lending with other libraries and institutions, including:

  • Public libraries
  • Educational institutions
  • Special libraries
  • State libraries
  • The National Library of Australia

Any member of our libraries with full membership status can request an inter-library loan. We will contact you when the item is ready. Most requests take between 2-6 weeks, however this can vary.

Inter-library loans fees - per item (non-refundable and payable upon fulfilment of request)
Non-charging libraries (Public Libraries) - Adults $3.20
Non-charging libraries - Seniors and Children $1.60
Charging libraries (Non-Public Libraries) $28.50

You can now pay online for library services.
