Library account designate

Appointing a designate

You can choose a designate to access your library account. This can be a friend, a family member, an attendant, or someone else you trust. They will be able to sign out, renew or recall items, and pay library fines for a specific time period.

We need your written consent to allow this access, in compliance with the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act.
