Joining the library

Anyone can join a Joondalup library.

Residents of any age, visitors, schools and care centres can join Joondalup libraries. When you join at Joondalup, Duncraig, Whitford or Woodvale, your library membership will cover all the services offered at all four libraries. Even if you live outside the City of Joondalup, you are able to join the library.

In person

What identification do I need to join the library?

Children under 18 need a parent or guardian with ID to join them, but don’t need their own identification. We require official documents showing:

  • Name
  • Home address
  • Signature.

This can be a single document, such as a drivers licence or a combination of documents which may include:

  • Driver’s Licence
  • Phone/power/water bill
  • Health Care Card
  • Bank statement
  • Rent agreement
  • Passport
  • Proof of Age card.

If you cannot provide documentation showing name, address and signature, please consult staff for other limited or online membership options.


Bulk Loan Memberships are available for Adult Day Centres, Schools and Child Care Centres within the City of Joondalup.
