Membership & Lending Conditions

Membership

Membership to the City of Cockburn Library Service is free to all people.  ID with your name and current home address on it is required to join.  Fill in the online membership form and then visit the library within four weeks to show your ID and to receive your library card.  If you are under 16 years of age a parent or guardian will need to come to the library with you to sign the register on your behalf.

Loan Period, Renewals and Loan Limits

All loans of physical items are for three weeks (ebook and downloadable audiobooks loan periods may vary). You may borrow up to 20 items at one time. This includes books, magazines, audiobooks, DVDs, and music CDs.

Items can be renewed by online – login to your account to renew you loans, or by phone. Note: Items cannot be renewed if they have been requested by another member or have already been renewed twice.

In addition to the physical items, you have access to ebooks, digital magazines, and e-audiobooks. These may be downloaded to a pc or a compatible device.  You may ‘borrow’

Overdues and Lost/Damaged Items

Once an item is overdue, a notice is sent to you as a reminder. Returning or renewing your loans at this time will save you and the library a lot of bother later.

Once an item is four weeks overdue an invoice is sent for the replacement cost of the loans plus a $5.00 overdue fine and your borrowing rights are suspended. If the items are returned in good condition at this point then only the $5.00 fine is payable. Ignoring this invoice may result in further fees being raised by a debt collection agency.

If you have lost or damaged an item please notify library staff immediately so that minimum charges can be applied.

Please remember to NEVER attempt any repair work yourself.

Library Cards

A current membership card must be produced in order to borrow material from the Library. The borrower named on the membership card is responsible for losses and/or damage to library material borrowed on that card.

A $3 fee is charged for the replacement of any membership card which has been lost.

Responsibilities of Users

Responsibility for losses or damage incurred by members under sixteen years of age is assumed by the parent or guardian. This acceptance of responsibility is indicated by the parent’s or guardian’s signed declaration in the membership register.

Parents (or guardians) are responsible for the supervision of their children’s reading matter and Internet access.

Users are advised to read and abide by the Library Service Charter and Public Access Internet Policy.
