External returns chute and sorter


Our external returns chute is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

The chute is located on the southern side of the Hamra Centre Library near the car park and multiple items may be returned at the same time. Certain items, such as toys, kits, costumes, sporting equipment and games (including jigsaws and board games) cannot be returned through the chute. They can be returned to the Hamra Centre Library during normal opening hours.

If you want to check the due dates of your items, please use the Library catalogue or the Libraries SA app. You can also contact us on 8416 6228.

How to use the chute

You can watch through the window as the automated sorter returns items and sorts them ready for re-shelving. The video below shows the sorter in action.
