Membership Terms & Conditions

Free membership is available to all residents of Selwyn District, simply visit any of our libraries to sign up or use our online registration form. You will be granted a temporary membership (2 book maximum) which will be valid for four weeks only; this gives you time to visit a library branch to show your ID and receive your new library card.

Adults* (including parents/caregivers enrolling children under 16 years) will need to produce two forms of appropriate ID to enable full library membership (ability to borrow 30 items at once):

  • Photo Identification - such as a driver's licence
  • Proof of address - such as a bill or letter sent to your Selwyn address. (If you pay rates, we may be able to check you address on the Selwyn District Council Rating system)

*Adult Membership starts at age 18

With your membership, you can borrow items from any of the District's libraries, as well as from the Mobile library, and you can download eBooks from home. The Self Issue Kiosks at each branch allow manual entry of your borrower number (and PIN).

You are responsible for every item borrowed, and also for items borrowed by any of your children under the age of 16 years.

Please let us know if you:
