Join the Library

Library membership is free and available to anyone who lives in New South Wales. We offer two membership types: full membership and eCard membership.


Full membership

You can sign up for a full membership in person at our library. You will need identification with your current home address.

Young people under the age of 18 also need the signature of a parent or guardian to borrow physical library items.


eCard membership

You can register for an eCard membership online for instant free access to our eLibrary collections including eBooks, eAudiobooks, eMagazines, streaming movies, research databases and more. You can upgrade to a full membership at any time. All you need to do is visit our library and bring along current identification. eCard membership is available to residents of the North Sydney Local Government Area only.
