Access the Library Catalogue

Use the library catalogue to search the collections of Holdfast Bay and all South Australian Public Libraries, place holds, renew loans and more.

To access your library account or to request items, you will need to login to the catalogue using your library barcode number and PIN. 
Enter the barcode number printed on your library card which starts with "X0", (the second number is a zero) and the PIN will be the last four digits of your phone number (if the card is a Holdfast Bay Library Card).

Please contact us if you require any assistance.

Library on your Phone

BookMyne is an iPhone and Android app that gives 24/7 you access to the library catalogue and to your library account while on the go.

Find them on the App Store and Google Play.
