Elderly or disabled residents

We like to ensure that all our residents can access our wide range of library facilities. We have a Home Library Service and a friendly Libraribus driver who can help you access our facilities either by delivering items to your home or offering transport to our libraries.

Local Information and Family History

Our libraries have a wide range of resources to help you research your family history or learn about the history of the Ku-ring-gai area.

Printing and photocopying

All branches of Ku-ring-gai Library have photocopiers which offer black and white and colour copying. These photocopiers act as printers too, enabling black and white and colour printing from all ezone computers in the library.  

You need your Library card to access the Internet computers, photocopiers and pay for copying and printing. Money can be added to your card using the Monitor Kiosk that is located near to the photocopier / printer.

If you’re not a local resident you can access the ezone as a guest user by showing valid ID to a member of library staff.

We also provide a remote printing service. Upload your print job to the Web print web site. You can also add credit from home. Visit the My Monitor portal and update your account details from this site.
