About the  Richmond Tweed Regional Library network 

Byron Shire is a member of the Richmond Tweed Regional Library (RTRL) system offering a combined stock of over 400,000 items, free of charge to its members.

Library members have 24/7 access to the library catalogue and can also review and renew their loans and reserve resources online through the RTRL website or Library App.  Members without internet access are invited to ring their local branch for assistance.
