The Shorelink Library Network was established in 1983 and the current member councils (Lane Cove, Mosman and North Sydney) signed a new Deed of Agreement in December 2017, acknowledging that cooperation delivers both economic benefits and quality Library services to their communities.


A cooperative model enables the Shorelink libraries to realise significant cost savings and share expertise to deliver superior customer experiences. In recent years shared services have expanded to include the telecommunications infrastructure (including Internet and Wi-Fi), a daily courier service and subscriptions to downloadable digital resources.


All the Shorelink libraries perform above state-wide standards, partly because Shorelink has fostered benchmarking and the sharing of ideas and cooperation.. Shorelink is renowned for innovation and excellence in the provision of library information technology and is recognized as an outstanding example of local government co-operation.
