The Libraries provide a wide range of resources for all ages and abilities, including:
Books, e-books and audiobooks;

Computer, internet and information database access;

If your Library does not have the item you are looking for, a Librarian can request it from the State Library of Queensland.
When you join your local Balonne Shire Library, you will receive a membership card for the entire RLQ network and have a Home Library within the Shire. Balonne Shire residents, workers and students must select their Home Library from within the Shire when applying for membership.
Members can borrow up to ten items for up to four weeks; the items can be borrowed from and returned to any Library branch in the 28 rural shires of the RLQ network.
Items can be renewed once, as long as the item has not been reserved by another borrower. Members can renew their items through the online library catalogue, over the phone, or in-person at any of our library locations.
Library membership also gives access to thousands of online resources through the State Library of Queensland.
Members can also place reservations on items which are not currently available, or are at another Rural Library. This can be done through the online catalogue or Balonne Shire Libraries staff can assist. Members can reserve up to 10 items at any time.
