Lane Cove Council Launches an Australian First: Library to Your Door

    A first for Australia, Lane Cove Council has launched a ground-breaking new service enabling all residents to have library items delivered directly to their door.

    The service, operated by Lane Cove Library and launched in October, is Australia’s first seamless online-shopping style public library experience, called Library to Your Door.

    For a small fee of $2.50, time-poor residents can reserve items and have them delivered within three working days of the item becoming available.

    A pickup service for any items borrowed from the Library is also available. The pickup service costs $1 per item.

    Library to Your Door is available to residents aged 18 years and older who live within the Lane Cove Local Government Area.

    Residents can order an unlimited number of items for delivery.

    Mayor of Lane Cove, Clr Pam Palmer said Lane Cove was proud to be the first council to offer the service.

    “This is an excellent option for residents who lack the time to get to the library during opening hours,” Clr Palmer said.

    “After just one week, it has created a lot of interest from locals!”

    To use Library to Your Door, library members simply login to the online library catalogue using their library card number and password, select the items they would like delivered then follow the prompts for payment to complete their order.

    The pickup service costs $1 per item.

    Lane Cove Library is open from 9.30am seven days a week. Click here for more information.
