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 4 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.
