Special Collections

The Mount Isa City Library maintains a number of special collections to enable access by people with special needs.

LARGE PRINT BOOKS

A wide range of large print books are available for all patrons to borrow. These books have larger than normal typing, which makes them easier to read if you have eyesight problems. Westerns, romance, thrillers, bestsellers & biographies are accessible in larger print.

LANGUAGES OTHER THAN ENGLISH

Book & audio resources are available in languages other than English for all patrons to borrow. If the Library does not currently hold the language you require, a selection can be obtained for you.

Requests and Inter-Library Loans

If the Mount Isa City Library does not hold the particular title you are after, please feel free to make a Special Request. However, you must be a member of the library to do so.

The item you require may be purchased or borrowed from another library (inter-library loan).

Most inter-library loans are free, but in some cases a fee may be incurred. You will be consulted before a fee-incurring request is made.

Every effort will be made to ensure your request reaches you as soon as possible, however waiting times may be long due to circumstances beyond our control.
