Renew your books online!

We’ve got a new catalogue.

And you can now renew your loans yourself (providing you have no overdues).

There's a link to the catalogue in the sidebar to the right. Click My Account and then “Renew My Materials”. The barcode and PIN you’ve been using in the old catalogue is still current, but let us know if you have any problems. If you don’t have a PIN, contact library staff on 9339 8620.

Please note that the URL for the catalogue has changed so make sure you update your bookmarks.

Hope you enjoy the new feature!
