The Mount Barker Public Library is dedicated to providing access to the widest possible range of resources. You are now able to search our collection and the collections of other libraries using Spydus.

e-Resources are additional services we offer to increase the value of your membership. They can be checked out and returned online.

Typically, all you need to access our e-Resources is a valid Mount Barker Public Library membership card and your password.

In some cases, you may need to download an application or set-up an account. When required, step-by-step guides for each resource are available. Printed instructions are also available at the library.
