To start borrowing Library items, you are required to become a member of the Buddhist Library. Library membership lasts for a period of three years.
To become a member, you will need to submit a membership application form in person at the Library, along with a copy of your current driver’s licence or other form of photo ID (e.g. passport). The types of membership are:
- Regular: $60
- Concession: $30. Available for full-time students and pensioners. Please bring your full-time student card or pensioner card as proof.
- Monastics, Buddhist Library Volunteers and SRE Buddhist Teachers: SRE Buddhist Teachers should bring your SRE teaching tag as proof.
The three year period of your membership is calculated as follows: If you join before the end of June 2020, your membership will expire on 31 December 2022. If you join between 1 July and 31 December 2020, your membership will expire on 31 December 2023.
