Library membership is free and simple.
Join today and very soon you can be enjoying our extensive collections, attending events and learning opportunities, accessing technology or reading a new release novel in a quiet corner of your local library.
Membership gives you access to all library resources, including physical and digital collections, events and services.
If you’re a Victorian resident, simply visit one of our libraries, provide proof of current residential address and agree to our Membership Terms and Conditions below. Our friendly staff will issue you with a library card and get you started on the spot.
If you’re under 18 years of age, bring along a parent or guardian to show proof of current address and agree to our terms and conditions on your behalf.
We invite non-Victorian residents to ask about temporary membership.
Please note: Library Cards expire every 3 years. Once expired, you will need to contact a branch to confirm your address and phone number for reactivation.
The Membership Terms and Conditions are subject to change without notice.
eMembership gives you access to our electronic services and resources. You can sign-up online here. Fill out the short form and we’ll process your membership and send your library eMembership card to you in the mail.
It’s the perfect option if you find it hard to get into a library but are still keen to access our eCollections, which include newspapers, magazines, electronic and audio books, music, language lessons and a remarkable range of information sources.
