Borrowing and renewing items | Redland City Council

Borrowing and renewing items

As a member of Redland City Council Libraries, you have access to a wide range of resources.

Visit one of our libraries or go online to the library catalogue or download the Redland City Council Libraries app from the Play store or App store.


Members can borrow up to 20 items for four weeks. This can be any combination of format, i.e. books, CDs, DVDs, magazines.

No overdue fines are charged. However, if items are overdue you won't be able to borrow further items until this has been resolved.

Renewing loan items

You can renew a loan item. However, if somebody else has reserved that item you will not be able to renew it.

You can renew an item by:

  • going online to the library catalogue, select 'Login' (top right of screen) and you'll find all your current loans listed in your 'My account dashboard'.
  • through the library app or
  • visiting or telephoning any of our libraries

Placing a reservation

You can reserve any item - either at one of our libraries, from your account on the library catalogue or via the library app.

When the item is available you will receive notification for collection. Your item will be on the reservation shelf at your nominated library. This is a free service.

Requesting an item

If the item you are looking for is not in the library catalogue, you can request an interlibrary loan or suggest a purchase.
