About the Shorelink Library Network

Mosman Library Service is a member of the Shorelink Library Network, a computer network that links the libraries of Mosman, Lane Cove and Stanton (North Sydney). Your library membership card entitles you to borrow from all of these libraries. All item can be returned at any library in the network.


Borrowing from your library is free and easy. You can borrow up to 20 items for a period of 3 weeks for everything except Fast Collections which are for 1 week. Overdue fees apply for late returns.


Loans are automatically renewed on the due date unless they have been reserved for by another borrower. You can also renew your borrowed items online with your library card, provided there are no reservations on them. Items can only be renewed twice. Renew my items

Place a Hold

If the item you are after is on loan you can place a hold simply by logging into your account with your library card. Placing a hold will cost $3.50 ($1.50 for Mosman pensioners and free for Children's and Young Adult item reservation). Search the catalogue for the title and click ‘reserve’. Search the Catalogue

Fast Collections

Mosman Library Service offers both Fast Reads and Fast Flicks collections consisting of current and popular books and DVDs available for a one-week loan.

These collections are not renewable and accrue a $1 per day overdue fee to maintain a continual turnover to satisfy demand for up-to-date titles.
