Borrowing, returning, renewing


Bring your library card so you can borrow. Your library card is for your personal use and you are responsible for all items issued to it.

Items are issued for three weeks except for DVDs which are for one week. Some items have a rental fee. The receipt slip is your record of when items are due back to the library.

Charges apply for overdue items. Replacement costs apply for items damaged or not returned.


Library items may be returned to either Gore or Mataura libraries. An after hours return slot is available at both libraries. Items returned after hours are returned off your card on the day the library opens.


If you need an item longer you may request a renewal in person, by phone, email or online. An item can be renewed up to two times unless someone is waiting for it.
