Richmond Tweed Regional Library

About Us

The 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 the Richmond-Tweed Regional Library Service was created. 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 within the regional library in 2012 was 203,565. All service points offer a comprehensive free public library service, including the mobile library.
