Woman holding Library CardThe SA public library 'one card' network is connecting the systems of more than 130 public libraries across South Australia to let you borrow and return items wherever you go, using your City of Norwood Payneham & St Peters library card.

Anyone living in South Australia can join our library service.

If you are visiting the state and would like to use the library while you are here, bring in some photo ID and as a 'visitor member' you can borrow up to five items.

You can register for membership at any of our three library branches.

To join the Library you will need to:

  • show personal identification with your photo and current address
  • bring along a parent or guardian if you are under 18 years of age
