Out of the Box – July 2019

We are now officially half way through the year, hard to believe isn’t it? And the Library has already added thousands of new items to its collection.

Are you aware that if the library doesn’t have a book you want to read, there are two ways for you to request it –

For new material, (items published within the last 2 years) fill out the Suggestions for Purchase Form, or ask Library staff for help. If the book is available and fits in with our collection guidelines we will purchase a copy and place hold on it for you.

For material older than 2 years, City of Parramatta Libraries offers an Inter Library Loan Service. Where for a small non-refundable fee, (each item) we will search and see if we can locate the item and borrow it from another library service. for full guidelines and to fill in the online form click HERE.
