About Us

Richmond Tweed Regional Library was established in January 1971, when Lismore City Council and Ballina Shire Council signed an agreement to develop a joint free public library service. They were quickly joined by Byron Shire Council and Tweed Shire Council and since then, with the strong support of these four councils, the library has grown and now offers a broad range of services including books, magazines, DVDs, community information talks, and author visits. An extensive range of eResources can also be accessed online via this website.

The estimated population for the combined Local Government Areas in 2012 was 203,565. All service points offer a comprehensive free public library service, including a Mobile Library.

Our Vision: We will support our communities to achieve.

Our Mission: To create an environment where people can connect, discover, and escape with knowledge, skills, ideas, and stories.

Our Values: Show mutual respect, strive to do our best, love doing what we do, communicate, connect, listen, and learn.

Acknowledgement of Country

Members and Elders of the Bundjalung Nation have been custodians of this land for many centuries. They have lived in, and derived their physical and spiritual needs from the forests, rivers, lakes and streams of this beautiful region. Here, Bundjalung people have performed age-old ceremonies of celebration, initiation and renewal.

We acknowledge our Indigenous community's living culture, their unique role and invaluable contribution to life in our region.

We pay respect to the Elders, past, present, and emerging.
