Will the lending periods and overdue policies be the same at all libraries?

No. Although participating Libraries may have similar policies, there may be a variation at some libraries.

How many items can I borrow?

Collectively from the One Library service you can borrow up to 30 items with a standard membership. There will be local limits on some items at some libraries, please ask at your local library.

Do I need to replace my existing library card?

No. As a member of a One library, you can use your existing library card. 

What if I have cards from more than one library?

If you have multiple library cards from different libraries, the library closest to your residential address will become your home library.  You only need one card for borrowing.​
