Library: Fees and Charges

Library fines:

Our library fines changed on July 1, 2020.

We no longer charge fines on any item borrowed on a child or teen library card. Our aim is to get as many children and teens reading as possible, so we have removed this potential barrier. However, fines are still applied to any overdue item that was borrowed on an adult’s library card – this does include any children’s books an adult may have borrowed. Fines are levied at 30 cents per day, per item.

Charges for lost books will still be applied to all types of membership card – so there will still be a fee if a child, teen or adult member loses a book.


The standard fee for each Interloan item is $6.00. This could be higher if an item can only be sourced from a library that charges extra fees.

Copy and printing:

  • A4 (black and white) $0.20
  • A4 (colour) $1.00
  • A3 (black and white) $0.40
  • A3 (colour) $2.00
