We know social restrictions make it hard for people without a reliable computer, device or internet connection to submit Council forms. To help with this, you can now submit our forms through the After Hours Book Return chute at any library branch, when you are out doing your essential business.
- Ensure your form is in an envelope or securely fastened
- Do not include payments by cash or cheque, or confidential or private original documents
- Payments can be made via the contact centre on 1300 367 700
- Library staff will not be able to follow up any errors or missed information
