To become a full member with access to the physical and digital collections, library computers, services, programs and events, complete an application form (online, or visit a library) and present identification documents with a minimum total value of 70 points. At least one of your identification documents must include your current address. Your acceptance agreeing to the conditions of membership is required to become a member.

If you are under 18 years of age your application must be signed by your parent or legal guardian. Their signature means they agree to the conditions of membership as the legal parent / guardian. The parent or guardian must show identification documents with a minimum total value of 70 points and one of the documents must include the current address.

You do not have to be a resident of the City of Gosnells to become a member. Membership is free, although applicants living at a temporary address may be charged a refundable fee or have borrowing restrictions applied.

All full members receive a library card. You are responsible for all items borrowed on your card regardless of who uses it, so keep your card safe and advise us if it is lost or stolen. You can use the lost library card notification form to do this, or simply phone or email the library.

It is important to keep your membership details up to date. If you change address you can update your membership here or by notifying the library by phone, email, or on your next library visit. Documentary proof of your new address will be required on your next visit.

You can choose to receive reservation and reminder notices via email and if you want to receive notice of forthcoming library events and new titles you might like to sign up for the monthly e-newsletter.
