How to join
There are various options for joining the library. Please note that we require referee details.
There are a growing range of mainstream devices that play DAISY books. These include free software, many home CD or DVD players, smart phones and other MP3 players. Specialised DAISY Players are still available for purchase through Vision Australia.
From February 1st, 2012, new library clients will be asked whether they wish to use their own device or rent or purchase a DAISY player. The rental cost will be $79.00 if payed annually or $7.00 a month, ($84.00 pa.) Clients can pay the library by credit card, or by direct debit. The library will provide the standard player guide information with rental players.
