Fees paid by members of Woy Woy and Umina Libraries will be aligned with the nine other libraries in the new Central Coast local government area from April 4.
As part of the process of streamlining all fees and services, a document outlining the first stage in fee alignment for the libraries has been placed on public exhibition.
The first fees to be aligned were for overdue items, reservations, inter-library loans, lost library resources, damaged library items and reapplication of item identification.
When all Council libraries move to one library management system in the new financial year, residents will be able to check the catalogue, borrow, reserve and return at any of the 11 Council libraries and access a greater range of e-resources, using one card, according Council administrator Mr Ian Reynolds.
