Home Library Service

The Home Library Service is provided free of charge to Port Adelaide Enfield residents who are unable to visit our library sites, due to difficulties associated with medical illness, age, frailty or disability. The Home Library Service van provides a monthly delivery to offer these residents all the benefits of library membership at their doorstep.

All library items are accessible through the Home Library Service. As well as books, DVDs, CDs, magazines, jigsaw puzzles and so on, we have an increasing catalogue of audiobooks available.

Contact any of our branches to register your interest and our Home Library Officer will contact you to discuss eligibility and your specific requirements.

Free access to public use computers and to the Internet is available at each of our four libraries.

To use the library computers you need a valid membership of a South Australian ‘one card’ library. You will need your library card and four digit PIN. You can make a booking in the library, book online or by phone. Bookings are made for a maximum of 60 minutes with a daily limit of two hours access.

  • Visitors from interstate and overseas can be issued with a daily guest pass to use computers and the Internet. Proof of age and identity is required.
