RLQ Tourist Card enquiries at your library

In collaboration with Councils, State Library of Queensland provides free public library services to people travelling through rural areas. The RLQ Tourist Card is an initiative of SLQ’s Rural Libraries Queensland (RLQ) service, a network of libraries in regions with populations less than 15,000.

The RLQ Tourist Card is available to anyone travelling through outback and regional Queensland, and provides free access to RLQ collections including more than 250,000 books, audiobooks, e-books, music, movies and more for six months, only at participating rural library services.

Tourist members can use their membership to borrow items from over 60 rural libraries and return them at another. So for example, RLQ Tourist members can borrow items from Cunnamulla and drop them off in Julia Creek!

RLQ library staff Andrea (Cloncurry) and Haley (Burke) with the RLQ Tourist Card banner, flyers and membership cards.

To assist tourists who visit your library and want to know where the next RLQ library is on their travels, visit the Directory of public libraries. Limit your search to Rural Libraries Queensland to find RLQ libraries on the map of Queensland. Alternatively, print the list of RLQ libraries and their respective Councils.

An RLQ Tourist Card membership flyer with a list of participating Councils has recently been distributed to your library. Independent libraries who receive RLQ Tourist Card returns are asked to send items to Cannon Hill with your next delivery. For information contact pld@slq.qld.gov.au
