Click and Collection Service

Richmond Tweed Regional Library is now offering members access to the physical collections held at local libraries through a new Click and Collect service being offered whilst the library branches are closed to the public.

Library members can request books, DVDs, magazines and jigsaw puzzles through the library's online catalogue and then arrange a time with staff to collect their items. Information on accessing the service and how it works can be found on the Library’s website at

Comprehensive modern library facilities are available in Ballina, Lennox Head and Alstonville.

All libraries (including the mobile library vehicle) provide free wi-fi, large print books and a great range of children, adult and reference titles.

Ballina Library also holds a significant Local History Collection, which includes historic photographs of the area.

The libraries are part of the Richmond Tweed Regional Library Service - the largest regional library service in NSW.

Ask your local librarian if you have a special literary request - they may be able to source it for you.
