NextSense Institute students and staff are able to borrow a maximum of 10 items at time, which can be posted out to you. Book and audiovisual material loans are for four weeks (except for Special Reserve items, which are on a one-week loan).
Renewals may be made twice unless the item has been requested by another borrower.
Reference books and journal articles can not be loaned. Photocopying and scanning facilities are available in the library.
Parents and carers of children who are receiving services through NextSense, and NextSense volunteers are also able to make use of the Rydge Family Library resources to support their information needs.
Past students of the NextSense Institute may continue to borrow books from the library (this does not include access to electronic resources); please contact us for details on how to register as an alumni borrower.
The Rydge Family Library participates in resource sharing through inter-library loans and document delivery with other libraries in the Libraries Australia network.
Members of the public may visit by appointment.
An after-hours book return chute is located near the main entrance.
