Interlibrary loan update

WA public libraries, including Fremantle Library, are working to continue the interlibrary loan system. This includes a 6 month trial of a new interlibrary lending system starting 1 July 2017.  

Where possible, we will purchase requested items, and customers will have access to 12 interlibrary loans per year.

To make sure new items are available for customers at their libraries, only items older than 12 months will be available for interlibrary loan. You can join any library throughout the state to borrow a book located at that library, subject to membership conditions. Membership also gives you access to free ebooks. External loans outside of WA public libraries may incur a cost.

The trial will be evaluated at the end of the 6 month period. For more information and feedback please contact Fremantle Library on or 9432 9766.


Notice of fees and charges

As of Monday 3rd July 2017, the following fees and charges apply.
