Brisbane Library Memberships
Whether you’re in Brisbane City Council, or one of the surrounding regions, a family membership at your local library is a must-have. It’s free to join, and you can then access books, toys, DVDs, CDs and more, at no cost. It’s a wonderful service, but do remember to respect the property you borrow and return it on time. Also check out your local library for free activities for kids, such as story-telling sessions and school holiday workshops. In addition to local libraries, you can become a member of the State Library of Queensland and enjoy borrowing rights and their regular children’s programs.
