Membership is free to Territory residents. All you need to do is provide the library with identification that includes a current residential address in the NT. People under 18 years of age require the signature of a parent or legal guardian.

For non-residents a $60 refundable deposit is required (less a $15 administration fee).

As a part of the Connect NT network, all City of Palmerston Library members can use their library card at any library throughout the Territory. It is the convenience of one card but with ten times the resources on offer! 


The library has a wide range of items for loan including books, eBooks, eAudio books, magazines, music CDs, DVDs, large print, spoken word and LOTE (languages other than English). The library offers an unlimited number of loans to members on all physical items. 

Lending periods apply as follows:

Four weeks: Books, magazines, spoken word, DVDs, CDs, Wheelers eBooks
Two weeks: Bolinda eBooks and eAudio books
Unlimited: eMagazines

If our library does not hold a particular item that you require please see one of our staff members at the circulation desk. You can request the item through our Reader Request Program and we may either purchase it or request it from another NT Library, at our discretion.
