Join the Library

Membership of the Library is FREE to Ratepayers and Permanent Residents of Esperance. You must be able to provide 100 points of identification. If you cannot provide 100 points of identification you may become a Temporary Member by leaving a deposit. Your deposit will be refunded (subject to return of all items loaned) when you leave Esperance or when you become a permanent member of the library. Visitors to Esperance who are permanent members of a WA Public Library may use their own library card and join with the same Borrowing rights as a permanent member without paying a deposit. Current identification with address details that show residency within that Library’s boundary will be required. Interstate visitors can borrow using the Temporary Member deposit system. Please ask at the counter for further information or, if you wish to discuss membership requirements, please ask to speak to the Library Co-ordinator.

Inter-library Loans

The library has access to over 3 million items in Public Libraries all over Western Australia. We can also access items from interstate for research purposes. If we haven't got it we'll try to get it for you. Search the State Library catalogue and fill out the form, or contact us and we can place the order for you.

The Esperance Public Library has a collection of local history resources. The library houses Esperance's local newspaper Archive. Hard copies of the Esperance Express may be available from 1991 onwards. Microfilms of the Esperance newspaper may be available dating back to 1895.
