Temporary online library memberships now available

Join without visiting a branch.

City of Sydney residents and ratepayers living in NSW can take advantage of our temporary online memberships.

With this temporary membership you can use our reserve and collect service to borrow books, magazines, DVDs and music, language and audiobook CDs. You’ll also get free access to our entire digital collection including ebooks, eaudiobooks, emagazines, enewspapers, and film and music steaming services.

Temporary memberships are now valid until 6 January 2021. Eligible City of Sydney ratepayers must also live in NSW.

When our libraries reopen, you’ll easily be able to upgrade to a full 3 year membership by visiting a branch. To upgrade and receive your library membership card you’ll need to provide proof of identity, including your current permanent address.

If you’re under 18 years old, your application will need to be endorsed by a parent or guardian.
