Join the library

Library membership is free, giving you access to a large collection of books, movies and music, as well as our eLibrary collection.

Join the library

We have three types of membership available.

Full membership for NSW residents

Sign up for full membership in person at our library. You need identification with your current NSW home address.

Young people under the age of 16 need the signature of a parent or guardian to borrow library items. If you're under 16 and wish to join without your parent or guardian present, please bring a signed letter of consent for junior library membership. Additionally, bring your parent/guardian's Stanton Library membership number or a copy of identification with your current address.

Members can:

  • borrow an unlimited number of items, including books, DVDs, CDs, talking books and magazines
  • download eBooks, eAudiobooks, eMagazines and stream movies
  • borrow and return at any Shorelink Library: Lane Cove, Mosman and Stanton
  • access online research and family history resources
  • use the PCs and Wi-Fi network in the library
  • use the library's facilities and resources
  • join in children's holiday activities, preschool Storytime and Rhymetime
  • enjoy free lunchtime conversations with authors, artists and experts
  • join a book club to stay connected with the library.

Membership for non-NSW residents

You can apply for a six-month membership if you’re an interstate or international visitor without a permanent New South Wales address.

With this membership, you can borrow five items from the library, use the PCs and Wi-Fi network, and access our eLibrary collections online.

eCard membership

Registering for an eCard membership online gives free access to our eLibrary collections. This includes eBooks, eAudiobooks, eMagazines, streaming movies, research databases and more. Upgrade to full membership by visiting our library with your current identification. eCard membership is only available to North Sydney Local Government Area residents.
