LIAC (legal information access centre)


Deniliquin Library offers a wide range of legal information, including a Legal Information Access Centre (LIAC). LIAC provides the public with relevant, up-to-date and understandable information about the law and includes topics such as: Tax Law, Business Law, Social Security, Indigenous Legal Issues and more.

The library does not offer any legal advice.

LIAC is a joint initiative of the State Library of New South Wales and the Law and Justice Foundation of New South Wales that was established in 1990.

Books on Wheels

Do you love to read, but have difficulty getting to the library, due to circumstances beyond your control? Maybe we can help.

Library staff select books, magazines and Audio Books (talking books) that volunteers deliver to your home on a monthly basis to library patrons who are unable to get to the library.

Friends or relatives can collect books and other items on your behalf.  These services are free to people unable to get to the library.

We have a good selection of Audio Books (CD) as well as books in large print for people who find ordinary print too small.

To sign up for the Books on Wheels program, call the library (03) 5898 3100. The best time to call is between 11am and 5pm on a weekday.

Guidelines for parents

Parents and guardians are responsible for their children’s access to library resources, including electronically available resources. Library users under the age of 16 must provide the signed consent of their parents/guardians before using the computers.

Below are points from  Central Murray Regional Library’s rules for online safety, which are a suggested basis for parents/guardians to discuss with their children before giving signed consent for use of library computers.

· I will not give out personal information such as my address, telephone number, parent’s work address/telephone number, or the name and location of my school without my parents’ permission.

· I will tell my parents right away if I come across any information that makes me feel uncomfortable.

· I will never agree to get together with someone I “meet” online without first checking with my parents. If my parents agree to the meeting, I will be sure that it is in a public place and bring my father or mother along.

· I will never send a person my picture or anything else without first checking with my parents.

· I will not respond to any messages that are mean or in any way make me feel uncomfortable. It is not my fault if I get a message like that. If I do I will tell my parents right away so that they can contact the online service.

· I will talk to my parents to that we can set up rules for going online, and appropriate areas for me to visit. I will not access other areas or break these rules without their permission.
