A library card is necessary to borrow at all of the Scenic Rim Region's libraries. Ten items may be borrowed at any one time for a period of four weeks. Loans may be extended if necessary. If items are not overdue they can be renewed on-line, by phone or by visiting any SRRC library. Items not available at the time of your visit may be reserved. A $1.60
charge per reminder notice is payable for overdue items.

The Scenic Rim region's libraries not only stock a wide variety of books, but also a large selection of large print books, picture books and local studies materials.
