Joining the library is free and simple. 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.
eMembership gives you access to our electronic services and resources. You can sign-up online here. Fill out the short form and you will receive a confirmation email during business hours to finalise your membership.
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 electronic and audio books, streaming video, magazines, newspapers, language lessons and a remarkable range of information sources.
The Membership Terms and Conditions are subject to change without notice.
