Library - Country Borrowers

The Alice Springs Public Library provides a service to residents of outlying areas who are not able to make regular visits to Alice Springs. To be eligible for this service you must live more than 100km from Alice Springs; live south of Barrow Creek; and/or have your mail delivered via Alice Springs Post Office. This service is not available to residents of an area serviced by another local government library.

How Does It Work?

Country Borrowers membership enables borrowing up to 20 items for a period of 6 weeks.  Loans for items that have not been requested for another patron can be renewed by calling the library on 08 8950 0555. Items can be returned to the library in person, or mailled back to us at the member's cost.   

How Do I Join?

You can join in person during a visit to the Library (remember to have some proof of identity and residential address with you), or you can ring the library on 8950 0555 and ask about the Country Borrowers service. We will then send an application form to you by mail, or you can join online via the link below. Your membership will be processed when you return the completed application form (or submit the online application) and provide proof of address.
