Kids only library card
Common Bookeater Python designed by Philip Bunting

Libraries have created three fun and collectable kids cards in partnership with some of Australia’s best loved illustrators. A library card is a child’s first piece of official identification. It gives them access to thousands of resources to explore, learn, dream and imagine.

Benefits of a library card:

  • Gives your child a sense of belonging – the library is their space and with the card, they become part of the club!
  • Teaches responsibility.
  • Provides a fun card to store in their purse or wallet.
  • Best of all, it is free!

Anyone can join and enjoy our libraries. Membership is free and no ID is required to join. To become a member, speak to staff at your local library.
