Welcome To Mitcham Library Service



Mitcham Library Service welcomes people to read, connect, create and learn. We offer a range of services and programs as well as a collection of items to borrow from our two libraries: Blackwood Library and the Mitcham Memorial Library. We are part of the SA Public Library One Card network which allows you to reserve, borrow and return items to any South Australian Public Library.


It's free to join the library! Your ID and signature are all that are required. If you are under 18, parental or legal guardianship ID and signature are required.
