Shorelink changes from May 2018
The Shorelink Library Network includes libraries from Lane Cove, Manly, Mosman and North Sydney (Stanton).
From 30 May 2018, Manly Library will no longer be part of the Shorelink Library Network. This step follows Manly becoming part of the amalgamated Northern Beaches Council.
- Stanton Library members will still be able to use their cards to borrow and return items at Lane Cove and Mosman libraries.
- You can continue to request items from Mosman and Lane Cove Libraries.
- You can continue to access a wide range of eBooks, eAudiobooks, eMagazines and eComics from the Shorelink digital library.
- You will no longer be able to return items borrowed from Stanton Library to Manly, or Manly items to Stanton.
If you wish to continue using Manly Library, you can apply to rejoin there after this date.
Please speak to staff at our customer service desk for further assistance on how these changes will affect you.
