Our new-style library card has a magnetic-strip on the reverse side, which enables you to use the printing and photocopying facilities at Hornsby and Pennant Hills libraries. If you do not have one of the new-style cards, ask library staff to exchange your old card for a new one. Exchanging your old library card for a new one is free of charge.
