Today we are here to give you a helping hand along with our AAA Network member Eastern Regional Libraries with a super cool announcement that library books can now be delivered to your home
While the libraries are closed and the advice that if you can stay at home – you must stay at home is in place, Eastern Regional Libraries will deliver a box of book, DVDs or magazines to your door each month.
This service is called ‘Click for Home Delivery’ and here’s how it works:
- A box of library items will be delivered to your address by Australia Post. There are three sizes of box and each library member can have one delivery per month.
- You can place holds on items that you want, or ask the library to make a selection for you, by phoning your local branch or ringing 1300 737 277
You will need your library card number and PIN to place holds through the online catalogue.
- Library staff will try to fill a box with your holds or requests. The boxes hold approximately these amounts:
Small – 2-3 small paperbacks or DVDs
Medium – 3-4 large format fiction paperbacks
Large – 3-4 large format non-fiction or 10-15 children’s books
It may not be possible to include all your requests in one box but the library will do their best.
Each member can have one delivery each month.
More information is on the ERL website or give the library service a call.
Convenient membership from home is available if you are not a member.
Ring any branch to join over the phone or click here.

We look forward to supporting all people, regardless of ability, to access these physical spaces once Coronavirus restrictions are eased.
