Conditions of Use

In accepting and signing your new library card, you agree to abide by the Policies of South Taranaki District Libraries, including:

  • Return all items by the due date
  • Pay for overdue, damaged or lost items
  • Advise the library of any change of address
  • Acknowledge the same responsibilities for any child you have registered or stood guarantor for.

Online Access

You can also access your library account online via either the computers in the library or your own PC at home. The barcode on library card is your account Log-in; all you need is a password. Next time you're in a library, come to the desk with your library card and we'll issue you a password.

Using your Log-in and password you can review the items you have on loan, renew items and reserve items that you would like to borrow in the future. You can also view your borrowing history and update your personal details. If you forget your password at any time, just come back to the counter, with your card or other ID and we can reset it.
