Application for Home Library Service - Organisations

This form is to be filled out by a representative of an organisation, institution, or facility with residents that cannot access the library, and who would benefit from deliveries of library items. Examples of such an organisation include but are not limited to, nursing homes, mental health recovery units, addiction recovery centers, or emergency accommodation such as refuges.

Fields markes with an asterisk (*) are required

1. Responsible Person(s)

Due to the nature of a library membership, it is required that at least one individual to assume personal responsibility for any items borrowed and to be a point of call for when the library may need to make contact regarding this membership. It is important to note that if only one person is indicated as responsible for the account, the registration is similar to that of an individual and registration may be suspended if that one person is no longer available. For this reason, it is recommended that you list multiple people here to ensure the longevity of the registration. Each nominated person must sign and agree to the terms and conditions listed below under (2). This list can also be updated at any time by contacting the Home Library Services Coordinator.

At least one signatory must have financial delegation within your organisation – this is so the library can apply fees to the organisational account as necessary to comply with the library’s terms and conditions, with the expectation that the organisation can pay those fees. Please note that the signatory or signatories with financial delegation will be contacted by the Customer Information Centre and required to provide identification to complete registration.

2. Terms and Conditions

The following terms and conditions apply to your membership. You are required to:

  • Return Library material by the due date or contact Home Library to renew loans.

3. Organisation Details

4 .Type of Organisation

Please note that a requirement of access to the Home Library Service is an inability or great difficulty in being able to physically attend the library. For this reason, this type of membership must be filled by an organisation with residents that meet that criteria. If you are unsure of your eligibility, feel free to call the Home Library Service coordinator on 6207 5748.

5. Delivery Preferences

Please note that you are not required to provide the address of your organisation if doing so would breach your own policies on security, such as for a refuge wherein residents require an undisclosed location. If this is the case, please arrange for a member of your organisation to attend the library to collect items.

(please note that some deliveries may be large and require a vehicle larger than a standard car).

6. Reading Preference

We will take more detailed preference information from you during our visits.
