Book a Book

What is Book a Book?

The ever pop­u­lar Book a Book’ pro­gram is back! This ser­vice was intro­duced through the COVID-19 pan­dem­ic in 2020 and allowed patrons access to the Library cat­a­logue in lockdown. 

We are proud to bring the ser­vice back for Alice Springs Pub­lic Library mem­bers from 11 – 17 Octo­ber while the Library is closed for ren­o­va­tions. Through the online form, mem­bers can request to bor­row spe­cif­ic titles from the cat­a­logue or try your hand at our lucky dip! Just choose a pre­ferred genre and our friend­ly staff will hand pick books that you’re sure to love.

You can browse the Library cat­a­logue here to see what’s avail­able today. Once you’ve sub­mit­ted your form, all that is left is to pick up your books, ignore the out­side world and get lost in a great read!

    Book-a-Book is avail­able from Mon­day 11 Octo­ber until Sun­day 17 Octo­ber, while the Library is closed for refurbishment.

    To book a book:

    1. Please click here to com­plete and sub­mit your order form.

    2. Once pre­pared, you will receive noti­fi­ca­tion to come and col­lect your order from the Library.

    3. When you arrive at the Library entrance, call the Library on 8950 0555 and a Library Offi­cer will bring your order to the door.

    The Book-a-Book ser­vice will cease when the Library reopens at 10am, Mon­day 18 October.
