Joining our Library service is easy and free and there is no age limit.
We are part of the One Card Network of libraries
The West Torrens Library Service is part of the One Card Network which connects more than 130 libraries across South Australia. If you are already a member of a One Card library, you can use that card to borrow items from us. You can also return our items to any other One Card library and other One Card library items can be returned to us.
If you are a member of another library and recently moved into the City of West Torrens, we encourage you to let our friendly library team know so we can update your account details on our state-wide database.
Children and youth under 18 years of age need to be registered by a parent or legal guardian over 18 years of age.
If you are an overseas student and/or live independently under the age of 18, are under state care, have limited address details or have no fixed abode, please call us on 8416 6228 to talk to staff about membership possibilities.
