The service is free for general requests:

  1. Tell us what language you want
  2. Let us know what you like to read, such as fiction, non-fiction, history, poetry, cookbooks or kids books
  3. You can get up to 25 books, depending on your membership
  4. Delivery takes about 10 weeks
  5. We’ll let you know when they’re ready to collect.

Specific titles can also be requested. You’ll need to use the inter-library loan service and a fee will apply.
