New Library Membership Fees

Submissions closed on 02 August 2020, 11:59 PM


Last year Hunter’s Hill Council resolved to terminate the Joint Use Agreement for access to library services with the City of Ryde following the conclusion of the current agreement which expired on 30 June 2020.

As Hunter’s Hill Council does not have a reciprocal borrowing agreement with the City of Ryde, Council is proposing a new 'Out of Area Membership' fee for Hunters Hill residents to join Ryde Library Service and access library collections.

Council is proposing the following: 

  • The establishment of a new ‘Out of Area Membership’ fee for Hunters Hill residents to join Ryde Library Service at a cost of $120 per annum.
  • A new Children’s category ‘Out of Area Membership’ fee that is free of charge for children up to 5 years (restricted to children's collections only).

Local residents are invited to provide their feedback on the the proposed new library membership.


You can have your say on the Library Membership Fees in several ways including online , e-mail or post.

Written submissions must be clearly marked as 'New Library Membership Fees' and will be received up until Sunday 2 August 2020. They can be sent to:
