Library membership

The great thing about our libraries is that you don't need to join to use the facilities. However, if you'd like to borrow items or use the public computers, you need to become a member.

You’ll find it easy to borrow, reserve and renew your loans and manage your details online. If you can't come to us, we'll come to you

Joining one of our libraries is free and easy. Anyone is welcome to become a City of Swan library member, including temporary residents and visitors. If you'd like to be an active member of our libraries, you'll need to comply with our Borrowing Terms and Conditions.

Joining in Person

To join in person, visit your nearest City of Swan Library.  If you are under 18 you will need to bring a parent or guardian.

Joining Online

Simply complete our online registration form to submit your application for library membership. Once registered, you can start reserving items straight away. Visit your nearest City of Swan Library to finalise your membership and collect your card. If you are under 18 you will need to bring a parent or guardian.
