The Shire operates four public libraries located in Onslow, Pannawonica, Paraburdoo and Tom Price.

The libraries may be used by anyone for study, general reading, or a place of relaxation. To borrow books, you must first register as a member and obtain a membership card. Membership is free – all you need to do is supply a form of identification at your local library to get started.  


Borrowing books and DVDs

All patrons are allowed six (6) items per person, which includes three (3) DVDs per household. All items are available on loan for two (2) weeks. Should you require more time, please advise library staff for an extension.

You can also borrow eBooks and eAudio books via the following links:


eAudio books

Services Available 

  • Inter-library loan service from the State Library or other libraries across WA.
  • Large print and audio books available for loan.
  • Internet services for a small fee (with the exception of Onslow). Parents are asked to sign a permission slip for school age children, as librarians cannot supervise this service.
