For schools

For teaching staff of children with Down syndrome, please download and complete the Library membership form.pdf and email, post or bring your membership form into the library. We will need to confirm that the family of the child in your care is a member of the ADSA. Once your membership has been approved you will receive an email with your login details.

To ensure the smooth running of the library and in fairness to all members, the following Library Terms & Conditions have been implemented by the ADSA committee. Please make sure you have read and understood these rules before signing or submitting your membership form.
Search Our Library: By typing in a key word into search or search under our category headings. When you find a resource you are interested in click on it and it will bring up a more detailed description of the resource and will also bring up other resources you may be interested in. Or you are welcome to contact our librarian, who can help you with your search.
Borrowing a Resource: Most resources can be borrowed for 4 weeks. Learning programmes can be borrowed for one term/10 weeks, these include Charlotte Clock, Numicon, Stern Maths, A Reading & Language Intervention for Children with Down Syndrome and See & Learn Programmes. Due to the high cost of these resources we also require a $50 cash bond.

While viewing the catalogue you can add a resource to your shopping basket by clicking on "add to collection".  There is no charge for this, you can then either select pick up which in that case we will hold it for collection during opening hours or you can select to have it posted which will be a standard Pass the Parcel courier rate of $4.50/$6.00 for an item to be couriered one way. Your request for resources will be processed on a Wednesday during the school term and resources couriered once payment for postage is received. If your resource requires a bond you can pay by cash or cheque when you come in to pick it up. We will hold your bond until the resource has been returned in condition it was loaned.

Next continue shopping or check out. Place your order by logging in and completing your personal details and payment details if necessary, click on place your order and you are FINISHED. 

All orders will be processed on a Wednesday during school term and either be held for collection or couriered out to you once payment for courier has been received.
